    Default Buying Sawyers Pheasent tail

    Does anyone have a decent source for these on line? I do most of my own flies but these "rip my knitting".
    I am looking for size 16 and 18s.
    I am fed up with those a PTNs with beards/hackles protruding from under the thorax, imho they simply dont work half as well as the original.And please no orange frtiz or hot spots, if its not broken why try and fix it.
    I like the orvis ones but at 75p a pop i think they cost too much (i am after all a Scotsman).
    Any help appreciated

    I don't know how much the ones from sayernymphs.com are but a friend of mine uses them and they look pretty good.

    Also very easy to tie yourself - that way you can control the weight of them and therefore the sink rate.
