I am not sure if this has been asked before, but I can?t seem to find any info on it. I am looking to define the hackle feathers on the bird. What is a cape and what is a saddle? What type of hackle do you use for wets and what type for dry?s? Every time I ask someone I get a different answer and I am still left in the dark. It might be interesting if someone could put on a class or an article here on FAOL as to how to choose tying material i.e. what is used for what and how to choose the best quality. Being fairly new to tying, I am overwhelmed by all of the differences. Thanks for any help!
