Did these awhile back. Since I got a new Golden Plover skin from Cookshill a couple months ago, I better get busy usin more Plover hackles.

Very nice! Did not know about Golden Plover, looks similar to Ruffed Grouse. Are the skins less expensive?

I get all of my game skins and wings from Steve Cooper at Cookshill in the UK. The Golden Plover skins cost £40.00 each (approx. $60.00) and are very scarce with a long waiting list. But it's worth it to get on the list and wait until your name turns up for a skin and / or wings. Snipe and Waterhen hackles also have waiting lists.

I get all my Partridge and hen skins from Dave Roberts at The Feather Emporium.... have been buying from Dave Roberts for many years and a great place to visit so you can pick out exactly what you want.

Those flies are beautiful. I think I'm going to try my hand at dyeing and see if I can take some of these Grouse I've got stockpiled and come up with a poor man's Golden Plover.
