Single Wing Flatwing

This line of roosters has been carefully selected over many generations to grow long saddle feathers with web. They are wider than dry fly saddle hackle and the fibers are softer.

The bright colors are perfect for tying flatwing fly patterns. The stems are strong and these webby feather hold their shape in water.

Unlike dry fly saddle hackle, these feathers have quite a bit of tapper. So if you’re tying wooly buggers and want a cone shape look, these are what you’re looking for!
