This video is part of a series. Please don't tell me that I should have talked about the difference between dry fly hackle, or hackle quality, or how to buy a cape, or anything like that. This video is for a specific purpose. I have a flies that I use this specific technique for. Instead of showing it in the entire video, I can just link to this one. This allows me to offer more info, or less info. You can select another video if you want more information. Or you can watch a simple 4 minute video without having to watch the extra steps, if you already know how. While there is much more to know about hackle, I am focusing on the simple stuff, with selecting hackle feathers off of a cape for use in a streamer tails, wings and as lateral lines. Its very important to prepare the hackle properly, and select the right feathers in order to get them to sit right on the fly, and even get the correct action.
