Olive Perfect Synthetic Quills - Large
Like most fly tyers, Semperfli love tying with Stripped Quills. Who doesn't? Olive Perfect Quills Synthetic - Large are their synthetic alternative, providing the perfect quill every time.
They have a premarked black edging that looks natural.
Peacock Quills may eventually become subject to Cites checks, as the wild Peacock is Cites protected, so you may need to prove that your peacock is from a legal source. This is especially true if you are travelling through customs.
Unlike natural Quills, which can be difficult to get hold of, the quality is consistent across all batches. Natural Quills are often brittle and hard to use! You may have tried soaking it, and experienced this first hand?
That is no longer an issue with this synthetic alternative. It has been developed in 2 versions. True and Transparent. And in 2 different sizes for each - 0.4mm for small (#12 and below) and 1mm perfect down to size #14.
With the transparent quill, anything tied below the Stripped Quill shows through, so base materials will shine through the transparent quill beautifully.
TIP - Coat with UV resin or varnish to create a tough body on your fly.
There are 25 quills per pack, with each quill being 100mm in length (you can get 2 flies per quill, depending on your fly size).
Semperfli challenge anyone not to see the benefits of this synthetic version over its natural alternative!
