These are married wings. Peacock, blue and gold macaw and something special.

First attempt Jason. Married wings are my most difficult challenge. These look very nice. Can’t wait to see the finished fly and find out about the “something special”.

You marrjied the well together. Just a bit of advice, they are to wide (too many fibers,try one less of each) for a beginner. An expert would have trouble mounting them. Better save your macaw for horns as they are triangular in shape and don't marry securely to turkey or goose. Please don't get me wrong here as it is just advise. The something special can get you in trouble, turkey with a similar marking would be advisable.

#billtrublubug “ Something Special” is Turkey I died on the top and the bottom of the wing to be a florican bustard substitute. Thank you very much I will post the finished fly soon

#MichaelJohnson I was doing some reading and between 20 and 26 fibers is what a normal married wing salmon fly is comprised of. I am open for advice being as this is my first married wing attempt. So you say because the wings are too wide that they will roll instead of collapse directly onto the hook shank

They will mount fine.. do the drop bobbin technique but, #michaeljohnson is right! Lot of materials for your first wing
