John - those better versed in saltwater FF history can probably articulate better, but I believe that the Gibb's striper fly may be the 1st widely-recognized SW pattern on which the JC feather was used. Extremely simple, yet deadly pattern: (traditionally) blue over white over blue bucktail, tied in from the hook eye; JC feather on cheeks w/ tip of feather extending even w/ the hook point; Bit of red bucktail on the throat. Not sure if original had some flash - think Kreh's book on SW patterns has some variations.

Thanks Tod... they do appear to be delicate and have a nice pattern...Might also make a nice overwing.

They do resemble the vulturine guinea fowl (also sold by Ron Taylor) which are the 'flat wing hackle' version of these feathers, used in the well known salmon fly the "elver" which is a juvenile eel. Similar but more blue and very long.

They make a great wet fly wing for salmon steelhead flies when tented in pairs (4-6).

John,
I've also seen them used as shoulders in classic streamer patterns. Like the Lady Miller fly here:

Juro,
Thanks again. Now I hope I can do those beautiful feathers justice. BTW did you check out my sandeel pattern on the "Got rubber" thread?
