    i just recieved a whiting(hackle) 100 pack and there were like 6 feathers AND THESE ARE SOME GREAT HACKLE FEATHERS!!!!!

    THE PRICE TAG ON THE CAPES IS WORTH IT 100% cept the 100.00 ones lol

    but they have SOME GREAT feathers on them capes.... VERY NICE i was quite pleased with the quality of the feathers and will DEFINATELY BE BUYING THERE FEATHERS INSTEAD OF OTHERS...

    these are premium feathers IMO



    just great stuff

    thought id share

    Whiting hackle is premuim quality and the 100 packs are super convinent to use. You might want to check out Metz hackle for a cheaper but better quality hackle than cabelas for cheaper patterns.

    You have to spend the $$ on nice capes when you want to tie tiny dry flies.

    yeah.....

    but they are NICE..

    very good quality.... i am definately gonna save up for one of them next time i buy more flytying stuff...

    but see you are actually saving money if u go with a better quality cape...
    the reason why is that if u can get maybe 2-on up flies PER FEATHER and there are more feathers on a cape... u save money if u think about it... just makes sence..

    more feathers,better feathers, more flys per feather....just adds up to saved money


    but if you are tying bigger flys u might have to go with a cheeper hackle cause they usually have bigger feathers
