: Fly Tying Substitutions

What are some material substitutions people like better then the "traditional" materials for that fly. For example on phesant tail mayfly nymphs I like to substitute wild turkey tail for the phesant tail in the shellback. I've used osterich herl for the tail of a woly bugger but did not like it as much as the marabo.
