    Re: Collins Hackle Farm

    I was really lucky to get all of the full capes that I need before this hair craze took off. I got all Whiting bronze grades, and frankly, some of the them should be silver. I get a least 3-4 flies out of each feather, more when tying smaller sizes. And you can't blame the guy for selling to hair dressers to make a buck. Any independant business owner would do the same in his position. He's not a fisherman either, just a crazy PhD geneticist obsessed with feathers.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    I totally agree with the bronze necks being great. The even the pro grades are really nice.

    Have you tried the "high and dry" necks? I was thinking about picking some up.

    I was fortunate to find some midge saddles just before the hackle craze kicked in and drove the prices through the roof.

    One of the RRTU tying nights I will try and remember my ginger dun neck and let you pluck a couple feathers from it.
