    Default Hackle company changes hands

    I see Conranch Hackle http://conranch.com no longer exists, Dennis Conrad has retired and the business/birds changed hands.

    Mudbug,

    Dennis announced it today on another forum; I only posted his current link for those who didnít know what Conranch Hackle was. I didnít want to post the new proprietor information since they are not a sponsor here on NAFFF.

    I just got on Conranch Fly Tying Hackle and there's nothing about Dennis retiring or shutting down the operation.

    Can you post a link?

    notenuftoys, as noted in previous post I will not post the new proprietor information since they are not a sponsor here on NAFFF. Dennis announced his retirement on a different forum, trust me.

    I am familiar with him. I have bought a few bunches of feathers from him... Very nice guy.

    I just don't see any evidence of a sale.

    It is true.

    I'm sorry if anyone thought I was doubting them. I just found it interesting that there was no update on his website. Maybe he hadn't had time, or whatever. No big deal, really. No need to get shorts twisted.

    Thanks for the PM, popperfly.
