Coq de Leon Feathers
Dating back to 1624 in Spain, Coq de Leon are some of the oldest birds bred for their feathers. Coq de Leon feathers have exceptionally long, stiff barbs that glisten and quiver with life, making them the ultimate in dry fly tailing. The sheen and shimmer of these feathers add a special quality to your flies at the vise, and a magical semi-translucency in the water. Just move them around under a light and you'll see what we mean! These high quality Coq de Leon feathers have been hand-selected for their superior qualities.

These are perfect for making tails. Much easier to use than hackle. My only complaint is that they are little expensive, not affording me to buy multiple colors.
Coq De Leon fibers makes great great tails on dry flies and nymphs - stiff, thin, and reasonably resilient. They do cost a bit more than most feathers but are worth it.
I have used many other natural feathers for the tails of my nymphs. I ordered the Coq de Leon and was amazed at the strength and ease of use. Will be loading up on the other colors soon.
