An artificial substitute for natural hackle, ready to use out of the package. Trim one edge to your desired shape and size, tie in and wind onto your hook shank.

Pseudo Hackle,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Baby!

Reviewer: A viewer from Palmer, AK US

I WILL ALWAYS HAVE THIS STUFF on my tying bench! To my way of thinking there is no need for Poultry feathers any more. I ONLY tie Underwater flies. Wonderfull stuff is all I can say/type! Wish they had more colors in the large size. I only use the large size. Later, Jay

Multiple Uses for this Product

Reviewer: A viewer from Coshocton, OH US

It took me a few tries to get the hackle to lay properly, but I played with it until I figured it out. Other uses include: using the cut-off portion for ribbing bodies, using extra hackle fibers make nice durable tails, and you can cut it any size you want for feelers, antennae, etc. I think I will find more uses for this product in the future also. I have used it on several flies since my purchase. Be patient with it, it works.

Great Synthetic Substitute

Reviewer: A viewer from Mansfield, TX US

These work great for tying buggers. When I tie them in, it takes a little time for me to get them oriented to make sure the hackles are swept back, but my 3D visualization has always been bad. I also haven't had any problems with bigger flies spiraling and winding up my line with this product.

Nice but difficult at first

Reviewer: A viewer from Willow Grove, PA US

First attempt was total FAIL. My wife gave me a "You spent money, you better try again" look. After playing with it a while it ties up really nice. Learn to twist and turn to make it point where you want.
Parachute patterns may be impossible though!

Save your scraps and mistakes! The little fibers make great tails! I even tried dabbing a bit of Krazy Glue on it to see if that would melt it and it held up just fine.

Useful product

Reviewer: A viewer from Albia, IA US

First off all, understand I am a beginner. Tried this on a soft hackle fly (size 12) and did not work well, possibly because of the relatively thick stem and lack of natural "curvature" (and hook size?). Real thing works better for me here. Tried it on a b**** creek nymph (size 10) and a wooly worm (size 14 curved nymph hook) and it worked well. Easy to tie in, wrap and tie off for those style flies. Will continue to use. Now - what will the fish think?
