I'm sorry folks but I'm struggling to take all the info on board about what type of feather does what sort of hackle. Indian, Chinese, capes, necks, saddles, cock, hen etc etc
Given that I don't tie a great number of flies, I'm looking to buy a small number of feathers (20) that I can use for general flies. I'm probably going to tie some mini lures, wets, crunchers in size 10 - 14. What feathers should I buy and where's the best place to get them?
I'm only be looking to get a few colours, maybe black, brown, grizzle.
I see the like of Cliff Harvey Angling have 4 Indian cock capes for £10. Is that the sort of thing should be going for, or are cock hackles more for dries?
Apologies for the daft question, I've had a search about on the previous threads on here and I'm just going round in circles
