    It's Whiting. Tied Adams 14's and got 2 flies per feather using Brown and Grizzly. Stiff barbules, minimum webbing. No complaints.

    Fantastic Feathers For Flytying - 6/27/2013

    I have only just started to use Whiting Farms hackles in the last 6 months and I can honestly say they are far and away the best quality hackle I have tied with. Although they are graded as 'Bronze' grade, the quality of these feathers is excellent: nice flexible stalks, dense fine barbs, very long (I can get at least two flies per feather from the cape) and the colours are bright and vibrant.

    Great selection this time. The last one was not as good. However, glad Orvis has started selling more tying materials, most are excellent quality!

    If you don't tie thousands of flies, this half cape should keep you happy for a few years.
