Default Attention fly tie experts

I been on a mission the last few months to downsize a lot of my hunting stuff and with that in mind I have an entire turkey tail section out of an Eastern tom I killed years back in Alabama.

The tail feathers and beard are mounted in a glass frame which I will keep but am wondering what if anything this could be worth to a fly tie guy.

Any thoughts

Probably be appreciated more by a long bow archer. Try the archery section.

considering the tail feathers wern't to dried out it would be worth about 2 bucks a tail feather.

Any fly tying school or some place I could donate the tail feather to?

I had a merriam tail feather that I gave to an old boy who had been tying for 50 years and he seems to be big time happy with it so I don't think this one should be too dried out.

Always looking for tying supplies. I teach scouts and other groups

I tie lots of flies and would love to get a couple of the feathers from you. I also know a teacher who teaches fly tying after school and at lunch times. I am sure he would love some of them also.
