Whiting Hackle Coachman Brown

Whiting Coachman Brown Hackle Capes and Saddles

This color is a dark red brown to almost black. As a rule natural Coachman Brown feathers are always "soft". For whatever reason natural dark colored feathers are rarely suited for dry flies as their feather barbs just aren't stiff. Finding mid level to high quality natural Coachman brown dry fly hackle is very rare. There are some out there but they are few and far between. Hebert Miner Coachman Brown capes and saddles are almost always dyed and look great. All the photos are of the actual cape or saddle we have in stock.
