I use all them and like them
One bright day in the middle of the night. Two dead boys got up to fight. Back to back they face one another.
They drew there swords and shot each other. A deaf Policeman heard the noise came and killed the two dead boys...

At first I couldn't imagine what a hackle pole was. I envisioned a 6x long shank hook with a little of every color hackled on it as sort of a reference to keep on my tying bench. I thought, well, fly tyers ARE an odd bunch of folks ... After all, the repaired nutcracker ornament that missed getting packed away last Christmas did hang on my bench until we recently put up the tree this year. That and several flies in various states of reverse engineering along with reference cards for bead to hook size and fish ID and my GO NAVY! decal also adorn my desk. So having a hackle pole isn't so odd - and actually might a good addition! Hmmm, now you got me thinking.
Anyhow, my favorite is brown with a dark grizzly hen a close second. The latter make some killer upright wings for a local mayfly pattern.
