hi NSFishing

Phone Bryant Freeman at Eskape anglers in Moncton, tell him your problem

and that you want good hackle for bombers.

You wouldn't be off the phone until its in the mail.

I don't have his number at hand.

You can still get it at fishing fever,you can get it at any tackle shop that sells tying stuff, the place doesnt matter as long as they have WHITING or METZ capes. dont buy the strung stuff on the far right, buy the 60 dollar capes, thats the hackle you want. Pick up every cape and pull it off the hook,feel every one, and make sure the sizes you want are there. Dont buy anything but whiting or metz for dries, end of story.

Thanks for the advice guys I was wondering where to get some good hackle too.  LSF would you trust Doak or eskape to send a good cape sight unseen?  I am weary about buying hackle without seeing it.  Don't want the webby soft stuff for dry fly bombers!  You seem to tie alot of quality flies so I'd trust your experience.

Yes without a doubt I would trust both Bryant and Gerry ....call either shop and explain to them what you want and you will get it.
