These Whiting Farms American Hen Capes are some of the most broadly versatile tying feathers available. They have a greater density of web than any other hen hackle and the roundest feather tips. In addition the feathers are both long and broad with a more substantial quill.
There are several different types of flies you can tie with an American Hen Cape. This includes dry fly wings, caddis wings, and spinner wings. For nymphs, you can use these feathers for wing cases, tailing and legs for most nymphs, collars, and pectoral fins for matuka and sculpin flies. In the bass world, these feathers are great for popper legs, crawdad claws, divers and sculpins.
