Whiting Hackle Black

Whiting Black Hackle Capes and Saddles

Black is . . . well, black. Most black dry fly quality feathers are dyed. There are occasions that a few natural black hackles come along and the quality is surprisingly good but not good enough for the higher grades. Most natural black feathers have an iridescent green sheen to them. This is readily apparent in hen hackle, both in  larger neck feathers and in saddle feathers. All the photos are of the actual cape or saddle we have in stock.


We inspect every Whiting hackle cape & saddle, then size them and then take high-resolution photos in natural light to ensure you are seeing exactly what you are buying. Since from bird to bird the colors may vary (as well as dyed colors) we show all of our in-stock Whiting capes and saddle below for you to chose the exact one that best meets your needs.
