Re: Hackle Help
Bobby those look like nice 1/2 capes.
From left to right, Light Ginger, White, Medium Dun and Grizzly.
If you were to add another one, Brown would be a great choice and with the others you have already, pretty much cover you for most hatches either by themselves or blended with others you have. And you can get pretty close to subtler colors depending on how many wraps you take of each. For example some popular hackle colors you might see in recipes (in addition to medium dun, grizzly light ginger, and white):
Brown and grizzly are used together on Adams and many other patterns.
Dark Rusty Dun - mix wraps of brown and medium dun
Light Dun - mix medium dun and white
Pale watery dun - mix white with a turn or two of medium dun
Medium Dun and grizzly or white = for patterns calling for light dun
Medium or Dark Ginger - mix light ginger and brown
Rusty dun and sandy duns - mix light ginger and medium dun
