Pro's Choice Intruder Plumes Tip Dyed Fine Barred Mini Plumes
Ostrich plumage is used for many fly tying applications. Certain types of herl is wrapped as hackle, other types work better for wings, tails or tentacles. All types of ostrich herl may be wrapped as parts of fly bodies or entire fly bodies. Herl bodies may be left round or sculptured to form abdomens with banks of gills.
Ostrich Plumes, Pro's Choice
These are med/large plumes with large herl for tying saltwater flies and bushy Intruder style steelhead flies. This is the grade that the best professional fly tiers use.
Ostrich herl is used in many types of flies. Herls are soft and absorb water readily for much movement when wet. Herls shed water quickly as soon as they are removed from the water. This makes flies tied with herl lightweight and easy to cast. Herls may be wrapped for bodies or used as streamer wings. Pro's Choice grade herl is perfect for Alec Jackson Spade type flies and Jeff Hickman Fish Taco style flies. When using fat herls with Fish Taco type flies, it is often wise to dress your flies on the sparse side to obtain maximum movement and swimming action. Often around 8-10 herls gives better action than 10-15 herls.
Average stem length is 12".  Average herl length is 4".

Extra Select Ostrich Intruder Plumes
This is the preferred Ostrich for medium size intruders because this herl really moves around in the water. Intruder Plumes are often used as Rhea substitute, and some very experienced guides claim that these fibers give better action than the best Rhea at half the price.
