Do you find the swan nicer to work with? Iíve never used it and have been curious to give it a try
I have trouble with goose. It marries well, but it doesn't have much substance compared with turkey or swan. I use it mostly on smaller flies now ( AJ #3 or smaller) or when I prefer a sparse, brushed out wing.
I tied one of these flies with a goose wing the other day, but after seeing yours I was inspired to tie another...
Swan is much more like turkey than goose, and the fibres marry really well. It is difficult to find, but I think you would find it well worth the search.
