Troutnut graciously gave me permission to make this post as a one-time semi-commercial entry.

I recently purchased a large close-out lot of capes from a former hackle grower in Arkansas. If you are interested in natural black, brown, dyed dark dun, or barred ginger capes that will tie hundreds of dries in #10-20 range as well as some streamer/bugger hackle at a more than reasonable price, please contact me. This is a one-time deal; I don't know how long they will last.

Tight lines,

Are you at liberty to tell us who this grower normally sold to? Any big names like Whiting, collins, or Metz? Would you consider the dry fly hackles to be a #1, #2, or #3 grade? PM me a price for what you consider your best grade in barred ginger and brown.

Post some pictures if you can. I am a collector of sorts. I mean a ""junkie"" for capes. I think I only have like 147 dry capes :-))))))) And you know that's not enough right.

I am always looking for the (cree or barred ginger) ones. I use them for tons of patterns.

BTW how much ????

Mark, the original post by Tim was from almost a year ago. If you want to get his attention to ask about the hackle you might want to send him a private message through the forum, which will give him an email notification.
