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:
