This is the best hackle for the necks of salmon and steelhead flies. Used to tie on #2 and #4 hooks. I use these for Polar Shrimp, Freight Train, Green Butt Skunk, Thor, Double Egg Sperm Sacks, Max Canyon and many more patterns with amazing results.
I bought these Metz soft hackle feathers and have used them in a variety of ways, even as substitute for partridge and as tail materials. Nice variety of sizes and the color is excellent.
