"I mainly use hackle cap for deceivers and half and half's and I have to say, Whiting Brand has never disappointed me. The feathers are straight, supple and in the water, come to life. Do yourself a favor. If you are spending the time to tie your own flies, spend the extra few bucks and try Whiting. I have no loyalty to this brand; just telling how it is."

"Although the color is accurate, the size of the feathers were much larger than they should have been so I promptly returned it for a refund. A bit surprised."

"The cape I received was awesome, fuller than I imagined it would be. Orvis ensured that it arrived in perfect condition, no damage from the shipping process. The cape itself is typical of whiting quality, fantastic to work with and looks great on the hook!"
