The best prices I've seen, particularly for the quality, are from our new sponsor Fishermen's Feathers from the UK.

I am working on a mini-feature to introduce Ron Taylor and his business, but in the meantime you can reach him at:

http://www.fishermensfeathers.com/

You will not find better quality, price or dedication to the art of producing these and other fine tying feathers than you will from Ron. We are pleased to welcome him as a Worldwide Flyfishing Forum supporter!

Tom --

not sure which "show" you're referring to, but it might
have been Phil Castleman of "Castle Arms" -- no clue
if he's going to Wilmington or not....but I can find out
if you'd like.

Per Fisherman's Feathers, let me know if anyone is making an order and I will place my order with you to share the (trivial) shipping charge. The prices of JC capes are significantly lower than domestic sources because he raises them himself. I've seen lower quality capes at over $50 USD higher than his prices. Most of what you see domestically is of low-moderate grade and the eyes are predominately splits. His stuff is premium grade.

RE: Phil Castleman - you can call his shop in springfield 1-800-525-4866. I'll bet he will be at Marlboro. If Ray Capobianco is working his booth, ask him about the great fish story about his trip with Brendan OBrien last year in Chatham!

I'd be happy to consolidate the order. In fact I'll cover the $6 shipping this time around, and I will bring the order to the casting clave. He is prompt as well, judging from my last order.

Is everyone looking for a full cape?

Half cape?

Other?

I'm with Tom. I'd be using these primarily for flatwing eyes as well. I would guess a single cape give you different sizes for tying different size flies, or am I off base. Does the grading refer to the brilliance of the colors, number of usable feathers or shape?
Guessing, I'd go for a whole grade B at $60 but or a 1/2 super.

Tom- I recently bought the grade C cape for the flatwingeyes and the other breast feathers(for Gibbs striper fly) and I'm very pleased with the quality of the eyes Some are split but alittle wax takes care of that and there are plenty of size variations. Ron even selected a cape with extra breast feathers for me. I highly recommend him and his company to anyone looking for good quality JC eyes that won't break the bank. Ron

How do we get money to you?
