Feedback needed.. I was emailing back and forth with Whiting Farms today about offering their wonderful 4 B's hen capes in a "Coachman Brown" color. They said if they get enough requests they would add it. Anyone else interested in "Coachman Brown"?

Below is fiery brown, which is not as dark nor as rich a color as Coachman Brown.

If you have seen or touched a Whiting Farms 4 B's hen capes yet, IMHO these are the best soft hackle feathered capes I have ever tried from Whiting and just as good as Collin's hen capes.

No one seems to offer dyed Coachman Brown hen capes any more and some of my favorite old patterns call for and look the best with Coachman Brown.

If you agree you can email that you would like to see them offer 4 B's hen capes in Coachman Brown.

If case you aren't sure what is a Coachman Brown color, see below...

Thanks for your feedback!

Lovely wet fly neck. I don't tie enough chin beards or wound nymph legs to be interested in something so nice. I buy the cheapest "India" rooster or hen necks I can find and am fully satisfied with the results.
