Best 4 capes / saddles color for hackle?
FlyTieDad posted a topic in Beginner's CornerHello, Pretty new to fly tying and I'm trying to build up my supply of dry hackle. I have a very nice collection of wet hackle colors but for dry I'm pretty limited. Mostly I'm looking for something things in the 10-24 range for size as well. So to my quesiton. What would be the best colors to purchase in both cape and saddles to give me the best options. I've already settled on medium Dun as most have suggested, as well as natural Grizzly. If you could only purchase 4 saddle/cape combos what would you get? Just to let you know I'm freshwater only but I'll tie anything I can learn to. Thanks, FlyTieDad
