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???

Many thanks-
