Whiting's Freshwater Streamer Hen Capes are perfect feathers for tying up streamers. The feathers are larger, which makes them great for streamers in the size #6-14. The partially webby feathers in these capes also produce great feathers for dry fly wings, and collars for nymphs and streamers.
The feathers differ between streamer hen capes and rooster capes. Rooster streamer capes produce long, more slender feathers. These are perfect for wrapping hackle or using for tails on streamers. Hen capes, on the other hand, produce shorter feathers that are wider than the feathers from a rooster. Hen capes have feathers that are great for wings on dry flies, collars for nymphs and streamers, while also providing great feathers for streamers.
