|We have finally sourced a consistent supply of quality Rhea
feathers. These plumes come from the South American Ostrich, a
smaller bird when compared to their African cousins. The barbs
on these plumes is similar to regular Ostrich, though they are

micro-barbs that make regular ostrich look so fuzzy. These
feathers are absolutely what you are looking for to make your
Intruder flies come to life.
|It's hard to get a quality picture of an entire Rhea feather. The ones
we offer come in lengths of between 14 and 22 inches. We do trim

package these plumes in an 18 inch bag and in many cases still
have to bend the top few inches of the feather over to get it to fit!
|Our Rhea comes in two different grades. Our Premium Grade is the
feathers that are not necessarily the longest but they have the most and
longest barbs. They are what you are after if you are looking to tie very
large flies with Rhea that is several inches long.
Second grade are also 14 plus inch plumes thought they have barbs that
are a shorter or have some barbs that are broken. Still a high quality
