Default Re: Hackle Help

Thanks. That helps alot. I just have two question. Most of the capes and saddles I am looking at online only talk about dry flies. What about wet flies? Are the feathers on the bottom of the capes used for wet flies? Also, along with the Adams and EHC I am starting to tie other drys like the BWO. For the Adams I would just use moose hair for the tail. Now that I am going to be using hackle for the tail I am wondering what part of the cape I would get the hackle from. Im guessing the bigger feathers towards the bottom??
