Soft Hackles

Soft Hackles

Metz soft hackles are excellent for Nordic conditions. These are hen sfeatehrs and they are perfect for soft hackles and front hackles on salmon and seatrout flies. This is a bag of mixed loose feathers and unfortunately you cannot expect all feathers in the bag to be perfect for hackles. This is a cheap way to get hackles and we always recommend people buy capes or saddles as the quality and number of feathers are far better than bags with loose feathers. At the same time, capes or saddles have the advantage that here there are several different size flies.
