    I believe he meant female chickens, they have softer feathers that are better suited for soft hackle flies.

    Work is something for people that don't fish.

    Thanks for posting this! I have sent the link over to our local group, Tidal Potomac Fly Rodders, which has a monthly tying session.
    fly fishing and baseball share a totally deceptive simplicity; that's why they can both be lifelong pursuits.

    Check the Whiting website, or the Feather Merchant website that carries his extensive line. He has several capes /necks of hens that are bred for soft hackles, and some that are designed to replace some upland birds.
