Fulling Mill Substitute Jungle Cock Feathers

This super-realistic Jungle Cock Feather substitute is printed on special durable synthetic sheets, offering a perfect alternative to the real feather.

There are four different sizes of feather per sheet, each feather image is outline cut for consistency.

These synthetic feathers are printed on both sides to give as natural as possible effect. They are more durable than real Jungle Cock Feathers, are more cost effective, and are easy to use.

Each sheet has 38 feathers in the following sizes –

  • XL – 25mm x 6 feathers
  • Large – 20mm x 8 feathers
  • Medium -15mm x 10 feathers
  • Small – 10mm x 14 feathers

Tying Tips

Use the substitute feather in exactly the same way as you would do a normal feather. When tying it in, either fold back the tag end of the printed feather or apply a small drop of Fulling Mill superglue or varnish to fix the imitation feather in place and prevent it from pulling out.

When tying small trout flies, the imitation feather can even be cut carefully in two down the centre of the printed feather, this will give you the split-effect that is perfect for tying patterns like Diawl Bachs, Buzzers and Cormorants.
