Looking for a little fly tying inspiration? New materials can often spur new ideas. Most of the time these new materials are synthetic but here's one that's not - the quill. It's not new but it could be under utilized. Try playing around next time you sit down with the materials that most often get thrown away, like feather quills and aftershaft. Try making dubbing from the leftover clippings. Blend what might seem bizarre. Let me know what you create.
