To alleviate the shortage of quality, natural tailing fibers Whiting Farms has developed the Tailing Pack. These small pelts are are actually distinct feather tractsfrom the shoulders of the roosters, or more technically refered to as the femoral tract feathers. Naturally Stiff, Glossy, and more substantial, these fibers provide exceptionally good tailing fibers.
The balance and performance of a quality dry fly is optimized by a resilient and glossy tailing fiber to mimic the natural. Synthetic materials are too stiff, puncturing the water surface and sinking a dry fly faster. The naturally stiff yet supple characteristics of the Coq de Leon humoral tract feathers have been the tailing material of choice for centuries. Whiting Farms offers these tailing feathers in convenient packs. Color choices include light, medium & dark pardo and natural ginger. A variety of dyed colors are also available.
