Hello, I was wondering if anyone can tell me the difference between mallard flank and mallard shoulder feathers. I'm not sure how to tell them apart. I know flanks can be used for tailing but was wondering what shoulders are used for.

Bronze mallard is mostly used for wings on traditional spey patterns....a good example would be the lady caroline.
