Excellent necks for saltwater and larger freshwater flies. These necks work great for deceivers, seaducers, and any other fly where you need well shaped high quality streamer feathers. Whole necks are much easier to tie with than strung neck hackle. Matching feathers (right and left curves) is easy, the feathers generally are in much better shape, and you get a good range of sizes. They make great cat toys too!
