Hey guys I need a bulk source of Real Emu Body Feathers.
I mean by the lb. or the oz I could give a rip.
I am getting tired of the 100 feathers for $10.00

Sorry I dont have a source for bulk emu feathers but I was curious what you tie with them, if you dont mind me asking. I have absolutely fallen in love with them for wrapping with ostrich herl on my Spades...like the Spade that is pictured in my avatar.

Been busy tying and have little time to post.
The Emu feathers are for peeping cadis and I use them for callors on some grub patterns.

I use them on great lakes steelhead and trout Hex nymph patterns to provide a breathing gill effect in place of filoplume and marabou at times.

Seem to work OK. Gives a webby effect, etc...

Hay thanks guys for the e-mails on the sources for Emu Feathers.
