Jason has kindly allowed me to share that I am "over hackled' with saddles and will make them available to troutnutters at my cost. I have 35-40 or so that I won't be using for at least five years. Let me know if you are interested.

Hey Tim, what colors do you have? One can never have too many (OK, perhaps you do...).

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Picking nits here but is the ginger light or medium?

And, being saddles, are they sized for a range of hooks?

Lots of questions, but I might be interested.

tight lines from a fellow Michigander albeit south of your stomping/fishing grounds (I'm nearer the 'west coast' L Michigan area...).

I was fairly close to Grayling a few weeks back, on the Big Manistee at CCC Bridge and roughin' it at the campground. Heaven on earth...

The ginger is medium..

They will tie a variety of sizes depending on the saddle. Let me know what you are looking for and I'll see if something fits.

PM me if you would..

You have had grizzly saddles for 5 years? You mean you sat on them through the hair fade craze??? Whiting is still holding on to his grizz saddles and capes hoping for a return of the hair feather fade.

I never sold any of the 130 or so saddles I own. Disconcerting to me that the companies turned their backs on those who put them in business in the first place. I should say I never sold any at the outrageous prices they were commanding. I did sell a few to fellow fly tyers.
