Differences Between Saddle Hackle and Capes
tctrout posted a topic in FTF VideosA common question those newer to fly tying ask frequently is, "What's the difference between saddle hackle and capes?" In the following video, I tried to break down the two into basic parts, and even briefly discussed grading systems. Finally, I give specific recommendations towards each, including colors. Feel free to jump in and let me know which you prefer for dry flies, and colors you suggest beginners purchasing first. Thanks, and Merry Christmas, TC
