Whiting Dark Barred Ginger Hackle Capes & Saddles
This is one of the most sought after colors. Generally these feathers have a light to medium ginger color barred with a dark ginger to "red" color and sometimes a dark brown color mixed in. As with most barred feathers there is quite a lot of variation here, with sometimes the lighter color being dominant or the darker color being dominant. Another color variation found in this color is that the light fades into the darker color only to repeat the color cycle repeatedly to the end of the feather. This color can be very close to cree. As a matter of fact the best way to achieve a color substitution for cree is by using a dark barred ginger hackle and blending it with a grizzly hackle as you would do when combining brown and grizzly hackle when tying the Adams.
