Schlappen hackle are those very soft and webbed feathers that are found on a rooster's tail. These are a must for tying nymphs. They literally breathe in the water and are the best nymph hackle available! They are available in extremely limited quantities, as it takes two to three, and sometimes four roosters to make one package. This hackle will yield #4-#14 sized flies. J.Fair can never seem to get enough to meet the demand, but they are absolutely worth waiting for. Please do not confuse the Chinese Schlappen with J.Fair's hybrid Schlappen, as there is no comparison. They are hand dyed in the famous J.Fair colors.
