Not Dry Fly Hackle

Reviewer: from Central NY

Package includes five 4" strips of hackle. I bought it out of curiosity hoping to use it for dry flies. I tied my first fly with it and dunked it in a glass of water where it almost immediately became waterlogged and sank to the bottom of the glass. No natural waterproofing left on this CDC. Looks like it would make a decent wet fly hackle, but it's useless if you want it to float.

Not as bad at the other guy, but...

Reviewer: from Washington

I bought a few packages of this stuff to try on dry flies as well. Mine didn't sink right off, but it didn't float as well as regular hackle. It also looks sort-of wonky on parachute flies. I wouldn't buy this with the expectation of never using regular hackle again.

May have possibilities

Reviewer: from New York

Like others, I bought this product out of curiosity and have just received it (but not tried it yet), and as noted in another review, you don't get much for the price. I would note that the regular size of the Henry Fork Hackle will likely overwhelm any fly tied on a hook smaller than a size 10, so if you are thinking of trying this product on any fly smaller than size 10, I would recommend you try the Ultra-Light version of this product (and doubt even that can be effectively used on flies smaller then about 14 or 16).

Very unique product that can add life-likeness to a variety of flies. Easy to work with. Recommended.
