flyjkol I've been coating tail feathers with flexament and using them as caddis wings.

Charlie And donít forget the shell back on the long tail march brown nymph (one of my favorite trout nymphs). And the turkey tail nymph.

There are also some new Maritime salmon wet flies that use turkey for a wing. The Tetras comes to mind.

flytyer What about their use as dee wings, components in married wing salmon classics, old wets like the Alder Fly, the overbody (or shellback) on Flick's Golden Stone Nymph (other folks also used them this way), and let us not forget turkey tail was used as an overwing on Theodore Gordon's famous BUMBLE PUPPY. You could also put several fibers together and wrap them like a herl to make fly bodies.

FishHawk You could use the turkey flats to tie mayfly wings. I think you pretty much have it covered. FishHawk

Let's talk turkey

I've recently come into some turkey tail feathers from a hunting friend. Aside from muddlers and stonefly nymphs, are there any other patterns out there that have turkey as a component?

I'm thinking that I can use them for wingcases on many different types of nymphs, but I figured that I'd toss it out to all of you to see if I'm overlooking any obvious patterns.
