Product Description


Not many people know how to breed for furnace. And as a result, a true furnace is quite rare. We have dedicated yards of breeders that produce wonderful furnace feathers. A furnace feather is similar to a badger in that it has a black stripe along the middle of the feather, but with brown on the outside. When wrapped, it naturally creates the appearance of a black body insect with a spray of color on the outside.

The “brown” of a furnace can vary from mahogany to brown to an almost dark amber color (Coachman).  To be classified as a furnace, at least 50% of the feathers of the cape or saddle need to be “furnace” in nature. Most of our furnace are much higher. Furnace can also be a good substitute for the much more rare, coch y bondu.







Flat rate of $7 on all US orders!

Grade 1-the highest quality and for those who want the very best. This grade will tie the highest number of flies because the length of each feather is the longest. Sizes run from 10 to 14. 

Grade 2 - a great value. This grade will still tie the same quality and size of dry fly as a Grade 1. The only difference is fewer flies, because the feathers are shorter. 

Grade 3- an exceptional value. This grade will also tie the same quality and size of dry fly as a Grade 1 and a Grade 2, but fewer flies per feather and at a price that won't "break the bank".
