The ILFF Indian Hen Back Saddle – Natural (not dyed)
The Indian Hen Back Saddle feathers come from the Turrall Indian hen back (non-genetic) and can be used on a wide variety of flies offering great value to the fly tyer. The hen back feathers come from further down the back from the neck. They are soft and webby and are popular for use on any fly that requires hackles including streamer patterns, spiders, emergers and dries. Use for palmered hackles, parachutes and others. Also good for use as wings and tails. For dry flies, they usually have enough small feathers to tie down to #18’s, but be ready to use two hackles to fill out the collar and the stems may be a bit stiff.
- Ideal for wet and dry Trout fly tying.
- Also use for streamer patterns, wings, hackle and tail patterns.
- One hen back per pack.
- Good amount of usable feathers.
- Approximately overall 17cm length x 11cm width.
