    Default A lifetime supply of feathers and bucktail!

    I have just received these feathers and bucktail from zuckerfeather.com via the US Fish & Wildlife. What you see here are 40 bags of .25 lbs of loose hackle feathers - there are about 3000 hackle feathers per bag. This selection shows 20 colours (2 bags per colour) and therefor .5 lbs per colour. I am still waiting for the other 20 colours I ordered. The box contains bucktail in various colours. This should last awhile!

    Bloomin' heck! Never seen so many!
    The red ones you could always sell off as spare wigs to Ronald McDonald.
    How come you only ordered one Coke and one pink bucktail?

    FAAARKING ICEHOLES!! You are not kidding when you say a lifetime of feathers. I hope you have applied some thought about how you are going to preserve it all Wiets? Perhaps you can tell us what your plans are in that regard?

    guys, this is all going on Wiets' boat so he doesn't have to worry about running out of materials when sailing the seven seas.

    Wiets, when are you getting hooks and thread to tie all these flies?

    I get the impression you'll be tying more than you'll be fishing

    The solution to any problem -- work, love, money, whatever -- is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be. --John Gierach
