Peacock

Swords are mainly for fancy streamers, wets, and salmon flies. One of the most widely used feathers in fly tying, herl is used for bodies and wings; eyed tails may be stripped with a pencil eraser for quill bodies. Peacock feathers have a shine and texture that imitates many insects very well.

"Good quality herl has become very tough to find. I heard Orvis eyes and hero were better...not so. Eyes are small and strung herl has very short fibers."
