I like to use grizzly dyed ginger, but that can be hard to find. I think my second choice would be a medium ginger. Cree or variant would also be good if you have them.

Bill I've got orange hackle...what size are you tying? I've also got a few of the ones PHG mentioned. I'm probably gonna have to do some serious tying while there! :(

Bill...from what I saw onling it looks like a brown or dark ginger hackle....I have some down to the 20's I'll put some in the 16-18 range in the mail in the morning....you'd probably have it in justa day or two I'll see what all I have this evening and send ya some of whatever I think would be helpful....along with a few flies :D

Bill, even though the recipe says "size 12-18", I rarely tie one smaller than a 14. There's just no need. Brookies as small as 2.5" will slam a size 14 orange palmer with reckless abandon!

Bill....is this similar to what you are wanting to tie??

Image

this is a size 16...I also did some 14's ....like Paul said...I'm not sure i would venture too tiny?

also working on some more of those cracklebacks

Image

both of these are tied with the thin brown hackle I sent ya....there's some other stuff in there I'm not sure will be of any use?
