So... my local fly shop laughed in my face upon my asking that they try to track down a silver or gold whiting cree cape or saddle.
"We save those for Dr. So-and-so. He buys a half dozen Abel #5's every year! Any others we get go to the owner of the shop."
And they had a really good laugh.
I know about Conranch and may get one sometime, but I want a whiting first.
SO... how does a mere mortal track a Whiting Silver+ Cree Cape or Saddle??? Any leads???
