5 of 5 Whiting Rooster Spey Cape August 8, 2019
Reviewer: David Briggs from Centereach, NY United States  
I am using this product for saltwater striped bass and blue fish fly tying.

I find this hackle provides excellent baitfish profiles. I am using it in conjunction with Whiting American Rooster saddle and cape hackles.

4 of 5 Novice View of This Spey Hackle December 29, 2015
Reviewer: Michael Mott from Elko, NV United States  
I've tied perhaps a dozen spey flies using schleppen for the hackle.  It was OK but I was curious as to how this would work and picked up this cape.  As a fly tier, I've worked at traditional trout flies.  Nymphs.  Midges.  Dries.  Spun Deer Hair.  
I've never tied with heron and can't tell anyone what the two look like.  Not many places had it and I was glad to find it here.
It looks like heron on the fly, at least pictures of it.  The hackle is more durable than it appears it would be.  The feather's spine is thin and easy to wrap around the hook.  The feather barbs are long and a bit tricky to work with.  
After tying a couple of Lady Caroline Spey Flies I'm pleased with the results and the product.  
The next question is whether or not steelhead will like it and that awaits my trip in March.
I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because the barb's are just a bit stiff.
