Take the pain, and inconsistency, out of stripping and dying peacock quills: Polish Quills supplies ready to use quills dyed in a wide range of colors. This body material is used to create natural segmentation of flies tied on hooks from 12-22 – dries, nymphs, spiders and buzzers. The quill comes from peacock eyes and is hand stripped, which eliminates the problems of cracking as when bleached or chemically stripped.
Using finest natural pigments Polish Quills dyes them in 16 different colors – the most useful range that will be appreciated by any fly tier: Natural, Olive, Golden Olive, Orange, Yellow, Red, Pink, Brown, Crimson, Ginger, Fluo Yellow, Green, Soft Pink, Forest Green, Turquoise and Blue.
Packs contain a minimum of 25 quills, which should produce at least 25 flies. When tying on smaller hooks, each quill can make up to three flies. Colors may differ between various batches. Because of natural variation in the raw feathers, the final colors may not be identical between batches, although Polish Quills will try its best to keep each batch consistent from one from one to the next.
