> > round tip grizzly rooster necks

Posts: 21I tie a lot of Adams' standard dries. I know a lot of you prefer the hen necks for the wings. But I like the rooster, because of the barring. The hen wings get wet, turn black and soggy, and the fly is hard to float and difficult to see. I used to get round tipped rooster feathers from an outfit called Cascade, and distributed by Cortland. But I can't find them anymore. Anybody know where I can find good round-tipped grizzly rooster necks?
