The super realistic Veniard Substitute Jungle Cock Feathers are 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 substitute feathers are mainly used for classic Salmon fly tying.
Jungle Cock feathers are mainly used as cheek patterns on trout flies to give the illusion of an 'eye' on the fly. More commonly on Salmon flies they are used at the front of the fly, placed near the head and the throat.
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.
Common flies with the Jungle cock feathers are the Cascade JC Double, Royal Dunkeld JC and Cat Eyes JC Double.
These synthetic feathers are printed on both sides to give a natural as possible effect. They are more durable than real Jungle cock feathers, are more cost effective and are easy to use.
