Jungle cock is most commonly used for the eye component of salmon flies, i.e: throat, horns, tail, etc. If you look at a Durham Ranger it also appears as an integral component of the wing and lays beautifully in the space between the curl of the topping and the tail. The feather itself is often referred to as 'jungle cock eyes'.

You can obtain small packages at nearly any major flyshop, any of our sponsors can help you out. For direct shipment of very reasonably priced high quality capes contact our newest sponsor Ron Taylor in the UK at:
