The feathers from the hen saddle of the Whiting Farms American Hackle offer exceptionally good and sometimes unique tying feathers. They have a greater density of web than any other type of hen saddle, creating an almost velvety texture with a solid sillouette. The generous breadth and length of the feathers provides greater size and density for those flies that demand it. Yet the quill is not overly large or stiff, and along with only modest taper, allows easy wrapping.

Here are some fly types these can be used for:

  • Salmon and Steelhead flies
  • Streamers
  • Skirts and tails on poppers
  • Matuka and Sculpin flies
  • Saltwater flies
  • Wherever collars, legs, wings or beards are components of a fly pattern
