Worlds best dry fly hackle,
June 30, 2014
By: Bishthefish1
from North Yorkshire
"I have a number of Whiting Farm hackles in various colours and in both capes and saddles.
The capes tie the biggest range of sizes (usually from # 10 - # 22) and you should get at least 2 flies per feather. The saddles only tie 2 (sometimes 3) sizes (usually # 10 - # 12 or # 14 - # 16), but you can get up two 10 flies per feather!
The colour of the feathers on these saddles is amazing, the stems are thin & flexible (but strong) and the barbs are very stiff.
Being quarter saddles, you can stock up on a few different colours, tie hundreds of flies and it won't break the bank
I don't think other brands compare to the quality and consistency of Whitings Farms!"

"I recently purchased a Whiting quarter cape. The size & quality of the feather matched my needs. Tying hackles is so much easier when using a quality product.
I bought the cape purely for the quality & the fact that the cape is quarter size, which for my tying needs is ideal.
The service from Orvis was first class, good pricing & speedy delivery.

"Hands down, Whiting produces the very best dry fly hackle on the market ... just don't bother looking for spade hackle as it has been bred out of these birds."
