Bob you're very kind and an inspiration!

Todd, the Metz saddles are fine for the smaller patterns up to 8" - maybe a few longer feathers.

I seem to have collected a few over the years, more by accident than design since I only got interested in these patterns last year. I picked up an off-white cape recently on sale at $15 - presumably inferior quality for dry fly work. At that price I'll take all they've got!

For variety, quantity of useful feathers and length, RLS take some beating.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
