This is a SILVER graded Hebert Miner Saddle, which is the traditionalist’s choice for dry fly hackle! The Hebert Miner line offers the best range of natural duns, browns, creams, and badger available to the dry fly tyers of the world.
The majority of these feathers are in the size #10-#16 range. As with typical saddles, these are long uniform feathers, capable of tying multiple flies per feather. The Medium Brown Saddle has more smaller feathers in the #18 range as well!
About Hebert Miner Hackle
Hebert Miner Hackle is a dry fly hackle of extraordinary quality; a premium product for the most discriminating fly tyer and fly fisher.

In fact, Whiting Farms produces powerful browns and badgers, delicate creams and gingers, and the widest array of natural duns ever seen!
About Whiting's Olympic Grading System
These are SILVER graded Hebert Miner saddles. A few key elements determine the value of a pelt between bronze, to silver to gold. Factors such as useable feather length, uniformity of feather length, barb stiffness, size range in the entire pelt, stem condition, feather quantity, consistent coloration, and more are all looked at to determine grade. In all, there are more than 25 elements that are taken into consideration when grading a pelt.
