Coq De Leon Hackle

Coq de Leon' hackles are long fabled as the finest in fly tying feathers. To alleviate the shortage of quality, natural tailing fibers Whiting Farms has developed the Tailing pack. The Coq-de-Leon roosters, developed over hundreds of years in Spain, are actually the oldest genetic chicken bred for fly tying feathers. Their shoulder pelt feathers have exceptional quality and uniquely speckled fibers, referred to as “Pardo’. The Hebert/Miner line of dry fly hackle stock is also derived from Mediterranean chicken stocks and has similarly high quality shoulder pelt. Between these two lines of birds the full array of colors and patterns needed for all tailing requirements can be obtained .It’s the newest thing for all around dry and wet fly tying! Long standing, the Coq de Leon feather is the best natural dry fly tailing feather available, but did you know the Coq de Leon Hen feather has bustard-like mottling perfect for wet fly tying and legging on mymphs? Give it a try! Whiting Farms is the only breeder of Coq de Leon with original bird stock from the Leon district of Spain
