    According to the little pamphlet that came with my first fly tying kit many years go written be the originator of the gimp you an use the feather from the base any soft hackle feather.
    I can think of few acts more selfish than refusing a vaccination.

    i dont see why that wont work

    philoplume feathers would also work

    i used the feather identified in the reference book i mentioned and even some online videos use the feather
