Whiting American Soft Hackle w/ Chickabou
Whiting American Soft Hackle w/ Chickabou

Alternative Views:

Soft Hackle with Chickabou comes from both hens and roosters. The Chickabou feather is located between the legs and the soft hackle is up near the breast. The Whiting pelt contains both Chickabou and the Soft Hackle portion.

The Soft Hackle portion of the pelt has generally large, soft feathers and their uses include hackle collars for wet flies as well as tailing, legs, cheeks for streamers, wing cases, etc

The Chickabou portion has a very soft, breathable type of feather, almost marabouish, but even softer with a better breathing quality when under water. It’s uses include streamer wings, tails for nymphs and wet flies, etc.

Both types of feathers are a great addition to any fly tiers collection.

Reviewer: Andrew from Canada  
I was pleasantly surprised at the large quantity of feathers that came on this pelt. Definitely lots of uses, to say the least.

5 of 5 Great Experience! July 13, 2015
Reviewer: Roy T from Columbia, SC United States  
Ordered Monday, got it by mail on Thursday.  Just the hackle I expected and well-packaged.  

Before ordering, I e-mailed to confirm availability on hand and got a quick affirmative reply.  I did likewise with another shop and am still waiting for a reply!
