All of us here at Blue Ribbon really like the Polish Quills. They can be used to create fantastic natural segmentation on flies tied on hooks from 12-22. Dries, nymphs, spiders and buzzers all look great. The quills comes from peacock eyes and are hand stripped, which eliminates the problems of cracking as when bleached or chemically stripped. Polish Quills are easy to work with and if you put a little zap a gap on the thread prior to wrapping, are quite durable.
