flytyer Even though I did not like the first generation Whiting Spey Hackle necks. I must admit the new generation is not too bad. They are quite an improvement over last year's crop. It looks like those who had posted last fall that Whiting was 2 to 3 years away from producing a very good spey neck were correct. I find myself waiting to see what next year's spey neck birds provide for us.

If the improvement is equal to this year's over last year's, I think we will have a ver reasonably priced product for quality spey hackle instead of paying too much for the limited number of blue and white eared pheasant skins or even worse, the extremely over-priced 10 feather packs of blue or white eared pheasant.

Eddie How about breeding birds with longer legs so the saddles wouldn't drag. Amazing.

Whiting rooster spey hackles

At my local fly shop today, the proprietor was setting out a selection of the brand-new (to me, at any rate) Whiting spey rooster necks. Far from slipping the word "spey" onto an existing product, Whiting has bred a new line to fill our heronless need. The bowie knife clenched in the proprietor's teeth dissuaded me from plucking a test feather or two, but fanning the neck showed a dense assortment of thin-stemmed, long-barbule feathers, apparently quite suitable for small to medium spey flies. These necks were in purple, grey, black, orange, and a sort of pale peach, with more colors promised. They're $30.:hehe:
