As other reviewers have observed you'll have trouble with anything bigger than a size 12. In the patches I received, the natural is longer and worked for me up to #10. All that aside, this is very fine, soft hair with uniform tips that is very nice to work with. It flares easily and uniformly and makes a nice wing. It's a reasonable quantity and should keep my bench stocked for a season or two.
Short & coarse with short tips top rate hair. Above patterns work better than the classic patterns because the flies float in the surface film & is a perfect silhouette. You can adjust amount of hair hackle to water fishing. Bushy for rough water light for still waters. With the price of ounce of dry fly hackle reaching the price of ounce of gold I sticking to good comparadun hair. Tight lines; wvmtman
