WHITING HEN SADDLE

The Whiting Farms Hen Saddle is the most widely used hen saddle in the world today. It provides an excellent quality feather usable for a myriad of tying applications.

 

Hen saddle hackle provides dense web and sturdy barbs that are excellent for a number of tying applications. When wrapped they are ideal for throats and collars on trout flies, especially soft hackle flies. The hen saddle feathers can be burnt or cut to fashion upright dry fly wings. Trico and thorax wings can also be created, as well as legs on wings on hoppers and other terrestrials.

 

Qualities:

  • Long, narrow feathers
  • Exceptionally fine yet strong quill; for less breakage during tying, less bulk or build up on the fly for a neater fly, and less danger of destruction during use for a longer lasting fly.
  • Firm, resilient barbs; so slower to collapse in fast water and quicker return to original silhouette.
  • Dense barbs and web
  • Small to Medium hackle sizes; necessary for the increasingly popular smaller size flies.
