Full Skins

Most people see a fly and look to buy the feathers to tie it, not the other way around. So I'm putting together a fly gallery and am looking for pictures. Digital pictures only, please don't send me any flies! If you've tyed a fly and think it looks cool, I'd love to post it and the recipie in the gallery.

The gallery will be divided up into dry flies, soft hackle flies, saltwater flies, spey and dee flies, and off course, full dressed salmon flies.Simply browse through the gallery and if you see a fly you’d like to tie, the feathers listed in the recipe are linked to the page where you will find those feathers for sale.

Full Skin Gallery

Under each of the tabs below you will find an amazing assortment of full skins. Everything from pheasants to waterfowl to hookbills. Each catagory has a featured skin that you can purchase from this page. Under that, is a group of thumbnails that are linked to dedicated pages.

 

     
Pheasants
   
 
Impeyan / Himalayan Monal $500.00  

"Bird of Nine Colors"

The green iridescent pointed feathers below the nape can be used for sides, cheeks, body veilings, tail veilings, etc.

The wings are covered with a lot of blue chrome feathers that can be used just about everywhere for the same uses as above.

The back and wing coverts are of a bluish-purple color and make great full feather wing flies.
