Hi everyone,
I'm wondering if anyone has used Woodcock in their tying?
Thank you.

I have, but not for years. I have so many partridge feathers, I could tie for a hundred years and not run out. Most game birds (grouse, woodcock, pheasant, quail etc.) have usable feathers.

But now that you brought the topic up, I'll have to dig through my feather collection, find a woodcock, and tie something.

Thanks outsider!

What feather do you use, and what fly parts?

You can use woodcock for tails and legs on wet flies and nymphs. Can also wrap smaller feathers for soft hackle flies.
