English Grouse Soft Hackle

A tighter barring than partridge and a rounded feather with a black, brown, and rust barring make this the classic material for larger soft hackle collars. Superb fly tying hackle feathers for nymph legs and tails. USA.

Love it!!,

"I like to watch Davie McPhail tie flies, and try to mimic his fly tying... Riiiigggghhht! I have a long way to go.
He mentioned using grouse in one of his videos for legs or budding wings. I know that I put them on top of the Nymph, under the wing pouch and they stick out to the sides.
The bag comes with plenty! and they are very good quality. I will definitely buy again!"

"You get a lot for the money, they really cram the bag with feathers however this turned out to be a negative. The feathers are of varying type and quality but I would be willing to receive less for the same amount of money if they were in better shape. Many are squished and ruined from being crammed into the bag such that I can't use them. The usable feathers work well for very nice buggy-looking nymph legs and some of the bent ones still work well for hackle collars. So, good feathers, poor packaging."
