    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

    med grey 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.

    Photos for those wondering on size and color
    Hook is a size 10 TMC3769 wet fly - the top feather came from the very top of the cape, the larger from the bottom.

    Pale watery dun

    Medium Grey Dun - two different patterns on the feathers - one banded, one solid

    Dark Grey Dun

    Light Grey dun

    Two unique variants

    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.
