A must for In­trud­ers

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Tackle -

These whole rhea feathers are dyed with black bar­ring sim­i­lar to Lady Amherst’s pheas­ant, a ma­te­rial com­monly used to hackle mo­bile In­truder-style flies. The ad­van­tage of rhea is that the fi­bres are longer and more mo­bile than Lady Amherst’s. As with most of Sean Stan­ton’s ma­te­ri­als their qual­ity is su­perb, which is why they are sought af­ter. Rather than wind­ing them, use a dub­bing loop to form a hackle, some­times mix­ing them with other long-fi­bred nat­u­ral or syn­thetic fi­bres such as An­gel Hair, Arc­tic fox and even rub­ber legs to achieve max­i­mum move­ment. The feathers are avail­able in pink, or­ange, yel­low, green and pur­ple. RHEA FEATHERS £7.99 Frank N Snaelda (Sean Stan­ton). Tel: 07825 183 346. Web: frankn­snaelda.com
