Feathers- as has been mentioned Russ Gooding(golden whitch) did an article for rodmaker-he sells the article for I believe $3 or you can get the rodmaker magazine from the rodmaker web site look under back issues- the most common and very attractive feather used is the Jungle Cock- most use one of the CPs for attaching the feather to the blank- the gudebrod is a little more sticky some like this others don't.
There is an entirley differnt idea with feathers that has been demonstrated by Pat Vinzant where he creates various designs mostly fish chasing other smaller fish thru the use mainly of peacock feathers while this seems complicated at first it is quite easy to do and offers a very attractive alternative, you might try posting a question on the guild board directed to Pat as to his methods. Purchasing feathers try Andy Snedon as he sells in smaller quanties
hope this helps a little
