Rated 2 out of 5 by cubdriver Disapointed Purchased olive hackle for tying size 10 wolly buggers. More than half of the feathers are wide round tipped feathers totally unsuitable for use as hackle as the feather barbs stick together in clumps instead of separating into individual strands as they should. The other feathers are fine and work as expected. May 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Corina Unusual Uses Hello, I've recently purchased fly tying feathers from the Bass Pro Shop for an unusual purpose - they are to be used as decoration in scuplted gel fingernails. Finding feathers tiny enough for that purpose is what brought me to purchasing fly fishing material. They will be perfect! Corina September 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by danii great purchase! Unlike most of the people who purchase this, I bought them for hair extension feathers. They are GREAT quality for this and are long and very very gorgeous colors :D August 11, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Goose4 Okay The feathers I purchased are not good for the hair. They fade. But Great feathers, they hold up great after many shampoos, blowdrys, curling iron and flat iron. July 18, 2011
