We have just listed the colors on our site. These have been very hard to come by. Whiting has just recently harvested a good crop of these, but they will sell fast due to the lack of supply over the past years.
Also just recieved some Whiting Silver Grade Midge Saddles in Natural grizzly. These will not las long, as we only recieved 2.
The show season is kicking off within a couple of weeks, with the Marlborough Mass show on the weekend of the 21st. For all of the show dates look at our "Show Schedule". On our home page. Hope to see everyone at these shows.
We are adding more C and F Designs' products to our site, with the new catalogs arriving yesterday, and the fisrt order placed, we are hoping to have thier items at the shows this year. Including the new magnetic fly holders that our friend Jonny King has been using at the shows lately.
Remember free shipping no matter what size your order !!
We still have some Whiting Gold Grade Rooster Capes in stock, we generally don't inventory too many of these, but, will continue to do so, if the demand continues.
Hope to see you all at the shows.
