A 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
Here is my newest YouTube tutorial on the process of selecting saddle hackle. I discuss an overview on saddles versus necks/capes, give tips to both select and purchase hackle, and finish with color and provider recommendations. Feel free to post anything additional you've experienced, or other quality hackle providers. Thanks! TC
