The dyed over white genetic capes are nice. I also get packages of the strung neck hackles and get some good feathers out of them. The problem with the capes and the strung neck hackles is you don’t get good length out of them. I usually have to use at least two on a fly body, sometimes three on larger flies. The fly in the picture has three separate hackles wound through the body.
