These combo packs are designed for the beginning fly tyer who is setting up a new tying bench. They contain 4 pieces of quality hackle including 1 grizzly and usually 1 brown. Though not graded by Whiting, the 4 half rooster cape pack is of quality at least equal to their bronze grade with feathers mostly in sizes 10 to 16. The Introductory Soft Hackle Pack of 2 half rooster capes and 2 half hen capes is from Whiting's 4B (Bigger, Better Bargain Birds) line. Both packs represent excellent value!

Other Details

The combo pack of half 4B rooster capes and half 4B hen capes is the first product we've carried in the 4B (Bigger, Better, Bargain Birds) line. Whiting describes the uses of these 4B capes: The roosters provide a supple quill, great for collaring, streamer wings, and quill bodies. Round, webby hen feathers are great for soft hackles, legs, wing cases, and even dry fly wings. Each type of half cape includes one of the bird's wings.

Incomparable Value 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Minden, NV US

Whiting Intro Packs are not just for new tyers, but experienced tyers as well. They are packaged to give you incomparable value. For the price of a single cape or saddle you get 2. The only possible downside is they are ungraded, if that is important to you. Also, if you don't need a whole saddle or neck, getting 1/2 saddles and necks is a real bonus. The ones in this combo are brown and grizzly, the most useful for tying the largest variety of flies.

The necks were at least Red Label Prograde, probably bronze, the grizzly saddle was like an Hebert Bronze, the Brown like a Red Label Prograde.

I was more than pleased.

best way to kickstart flytying 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Hillsdale, Michigan US

I ordered these half capes a few weeks after I got my new fly vise for Christmas. I was drawn in by the price and variety. I am VERY pleased with the amount, size variety, and quality of these hackles. My order also came very fast. 3 days I think. I will for sure recommend this product and company.

Blown Away 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Little Elm, TX US

WOW is all I can say about the quality and quantity of this product for the price. You really do get a bronze or better level saddles and capes and four of them for about the price of two. I bought both the 4 capes and 4 saddles variety to get my bench up and running. This is the best deal around if you are in need of replacing a lot of your supplies or starting up in fly tying. It would have taken me a lot longer to get a large amount of materials together if it were not for this great deal from Whiting. I highly recomend this bundle if you are in need of a lot of capes or saddles, you really really will not be dissapointed.

perfect for beginners 5 out of 5 stars

Reviewer: from Clarks Summit, PA US

these are the perfect way for beginners to buy hackles...for one low price, you get the four most useful hackle colors and enough to tie hundreds of flies. Also great for the experienced tier on a budget (like myself...)
