So last week i found a great deal on hen saddles for use as soft hackles.

The whiting Hebert Minor Hen Saddle is on sale at caddis fly shop in oregon for only $3.95 - a 60% discount. Shipping is free over $25 bucks.

If you are interested in these they can be found on the caddis fly shop web page. Open the page and search WHITING HEBERT MINOR HEN SADDLE.

Current colors available are 4 varieties of Dun

They also HAD variant which i bought two off, but they appear to be sold out.
I also bought 2 med grey dun, which had differnent patterns, one was grizzly like the other just plain. I"ll post some pics if i can later (currently in work).

They also have some deals on other whiting products. Happy shopping.

Have you received them yet (or purchased them before)?

Just curious because I went on the website and those look like some pretty big feathers.

Have them already. The feathers aren't that big, and there is a good range of sizes. Forgot to take pics last night, but will do so this evening and post them.

THere are definitely feathers for size 14-16 hooks.

Nice feathers at a very good price. This is also a very good company to deal with, I have been buying from them for a few years and have had no real problems.

Thank you for posting all those pic's!

Good range of feathers... looks to be quite a bargain.

That speckled variant on the right side looks "buggy"... very nice.
