Re: Starling skins

I thought I had a lead for you. I bought some at an expo several years ago and they are gorgeous skins, several dyed colors as well. I just checked the packages and not one name to the bunch. Sorry, Mike. I just did some googling and saw that www.eflytyer.com had starling. Everything I got from him...
