Re: Hen cape - what color would call this?

Gotcha. I don't mind them. I have a bunch of old Metz hen capes from the 80's that I use too. I do wish whiting were a little more webby, but it is what it is. I do use the whiting cdl hen capes quite a bit. Very buggy.

No, it is not a Brahma and it is not dyed. I don't buy Whiting Brahma hen capes. I have never really liked them.
John,
Why don't you like them?

Re: Olive caddisfly

Very nice, John. The yli silk will darken quite a bit when it's wet. I've wrapped many a rod with that color. Love it on blonde cane and white glass.
