Soft Hackle Hen Backs
by Wapsi Fly, Inc
Also often referred to as Indian Hen Saddles or sometimes Speckled Hen Saddle Backs, these economically priced feather patches are a fly tying favorite indeed. With scores of soft and incredibly webby feathers, each richly mottled with colors ranging from light creamy browns to dark blacks and warm grays, they're a wonderful alternative to expensive Hungarian Partridge for collaring medium to large sized soft hackle wets. Great for tails, throats, and legs on nymphs too, and handy for fins on sculpins or claws/pinchers on crayfish as well, our Soft Hackle Indian Hen Backs are a real bargain.
