Whiting Dry Fly Capes

This is not your everyday barnyard rooster. Far from it. This guy is the result of over 50 years of selective breeding.

So what makes his feathers so special? Barb density and stiffness, feather symatry, and stem shape, are just a few criteria that are used to judge whether or not his genes will find their way into future generations.

It's not surprising that it took over 50 years of intensive selection preasure to reach this level of perfection.

dry fly hackleWhiting Farms Dry Fly Capes

Whiting Farms has set the standard in the market for dry fly capes. The feather count, barb density, symetry, flexable stems, have changed the world of fly tying.

The original Whiting stock was aquired from Heny Hoffman back in 1989. This is the red label or Whiting line. The green label or Hebert Miner line oringinated from the work Harry Darbee and Andy Miner began back in the Catskills. Dr. Whiting purchased this genetic stock from Ted Hebert in 1992.

So which is better? What are the differences? The Hoffman or Whiting line is best known for it's small sizes, high feather count, and flexible stems. For the first 20 years, Hoffman only bred grizzly and white birds. So this line is more limited in color, but you won't find a better grizzly.

The Hebert Miner line is best known for the incredible selection of natural colors. Darbee's selective breeding for every shade of dun has made this a favorite among tiers. Also, you'll find these capes have a wider range of sizes.

 

"High Grade" Capes - Looking for the "Best of the best"? These capes are some of Dr. Whiting's genetic work at its finest. You really need to see these. The feathers on these are so long they look more like saddles. You'll find pictures here; High-Grade Whiting Capes.

 

Packaged Capes - If you'd rather buy capes in the Whiting packaging, I offer them from Pro Grade to Gold in both the Whiting and Hebert line. They are priced at Whiting's "suggested retail pricing", the same you'll find on every other site. To see the complete offering of colors, please visit; Whiting Packaged Capes.

 

Show Capes - For those who have met me at a fly fishing show, these are the same high quality capes direct from Whiting Farms and now you can get them on-line. A mixture of Whiting and Hebert Miner, they are a great value. And the best news, no more digging to the bottom of the bin searching for that hard to find color. So take a look...

Whiting Farms Dry Fly 1/2 Capes $75.00  

T.U. Starter Kit

Many Trout Unlimited clubs offer fly tying classes for beginners just starting out.

Years ago I took those classes and besides learning a lot, had a great time.

Back then a size 12 seem tiny, and finding good hackle at an affordable price was impossible. I couldn't afford a $60 neck.

I'm offering these 1/2 capes at an affordable price so that beginers have a chance to learn with the best dry fly hackle on the market.

Grizzly and brown are the colors most called for in dry fly patterns, followed by dun, then black, and cream.

And if you're just getting started, start with capes. They have hook sizes ranging from 10's to 20's and tailing fibers on the outer edge.

 

TU Starter Kit / $75

 

 

 

High Grade T.U. Starter Kit

I also offer a package of higher grade half capes. They have a wider size range and higher feather count. Well worth the extra $25!

Mayfly Winger Feathers

Many people ask "what is the best feather to use for tying wings on my dry flies?"

Well, here is a feather that works well; nice barring, web right up to the edge, and nice round tips - all making for the perfect siloette on the water.

<fly fishing show>Whiting "High-Grade" Dry Fly Capes

For those who have met me at a show, these are the same high quality capes and now you can get them on-line.

These are unpackaged Whiting dry fly capes, I grade them for the shows on the old number system. As a general reference, a Grade #2 is between a Whiting Bronze and Silver. Some may have a few broken tips, others a few feathers rubbed off, but the quality is exceptional, the feathers are long and the count is high.

At the shows, the best way to get customers to see the incredible quality of these capes is for them to pick them up and bend the feathers. Like the customer pictured on the left. The only way to do this is to have unpackaged capes in bins. Believe me, the shows are busy and this works well.

These are the best of the best, Dr. Tom Whiting's work at it's finest. These capes are nothing short of perfection, a work of art.
