The Whiting Farms Rooster Soft Hackle with Chickabou pelt provides two distinct types of feathers for subsurface flies, each with a multitude of applications.
The top portion of the pelt contains two mirroring panels of full web, matuka type soft hackle, which can be used as a full feather for larger salt or freshwater flies, or wrapped to form a collar in a hook sizes range from 10 to 2.
The marabou like Chickabou feathers at the narrow end are much finer and more delicate than traditional turkey marabou. Ideal for a very large variety of wet flies, such as damsel, dragonflies, smaller wooly buggers, nymphs, sculpin flies and leech patterns.
For the Tasmanian fishers, the Soft Hackle with Chickabou pelt is perfect for the popular early season pattern, the Magoo, Shrek and more.
