Has anyone bought a Whiting Eurohackle saddle? If so, I am curious what you thought of the quality for dry flies. Is it just called that due to the limited range of sizes, or is there some other inferiority worth knowing about?

Thanks.

Aaron

The first step in recovery from hackle addiction is admitting you have a problem.

Are they still selling dime bags of hackle on your street corner, Aaron? Can you go one day, just one day, without a hit of hackle?

Sad, my friend. Really sad.

I'm here for you when you're ready to quit, buddy.

Yer Pal,
Streamer

P.S. I don't know the answer to your question.

Admittedly, I am having some issues. It's Tom's fault. It's like knitting for men (tying), pokeman cards for adults (collecting and trading feathers), and when you add ebay you throw in some gambling addiction, too.

These particular feathers would round out the collection I am working on, but I swear, this would be the last clump of feathers I will need to buy for A LONG time. (I am still hoping to skin a hen gadwall or two next week and maybe get some teal flank, too, but that would be "free" except for airfare, guide and lodging.)

My next step will be learning what I am supposed to do with all the feathers.

Cheers,

Aaron

One that you really need is a first grade Jungle Cock full cape. No fly tier should be without one of those. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Who are you kidding Aaron...when that cree saddle hit $250 I could hear it in your voice...you still wanted to bid on it! I'm just warning you ...there are many feather addicts out there that have actually resorted to prostituting themselves out just to get another few nice feathers......you're on a wreckless course! :(
