Whiting's Hebert Miner Hackle saddles are a dry fly fisherman's dream. A less-expensive alternative to the Whiting saddles with the only difference being slightly less dense hackle barbs, the Hebert Miner line is arguably the best "natural" colored hackles anywhere. This is probably one of the biggest values in fly tying. These are Bronze Grade saddles and you'll be amazed at the quality of the feathers! We use and love the Hebert Miner birds!
