The Canadian Tube Fly Company
Gray Heron
The Heron feathers we
offer come from a bird
that is very plentiful in
the world.

They are not listed on
Migratory Birds  
Conventions Act  
(Canada) and are legal  
to purchase and posses  
under Canadian law.

Gray Heron is also not
on the
(Convention on
International Trade in
Endangered Species).  
Under International law
they are  completely  
legal to import.
We have sent these
feathers to customers in
over 25  different

Unfortunately though,
the Gray Heron is
protected in the United
States under
Migratory Bird Treaty
Act (USA).

Because of this our Gray
Heron is not available to
our US friends.
If you have ever tied with Heron substitutes like Rhea or Blue Eared Pheasant, you
will quickly notice how much better the original is.

We are very happy to have found not only one, but two different species of heron
feathers. Our heron that we have been offering to tyers over the past few years
has easily been our best selling plume. We know that our new Gray Heron will be a
hit too. It has the same great look as our
regular heron but it is even bigger,
perfect for tubes and larger hooks. Many of the Extra Large Grey Heron feathers
over 10 inches in total length!
$8.95 per package of five EXTRA LARGE plumes
$33.95 per super package of twenty Extra Large Gray Heron plumes
The Extra Large Gray Heron is so big that you can palmer a three inch long tube
(above) from the back , all the way to the front, and still have enough for a few wraps
at the collar. The three inch of tube covered was tied with only one of these fantastic
