I tie most of my flies but the quality of your tiny ones and flies with expensive or complex elements makes it tempting to buy from you. However, I wonder if you have considered making up or buying in mixed packets of long hackles similar to Whiting or Metz. For most of us buying a cape is excessively expensive given the amount of feathers we use and the need for variety. Orvis used to sell a great mixed pack of long hackles but it seems to have disappeared and I can't find similar on-line in any fly-tying supplies.
Thank you for your kind comments regarding our flies and the materials used.
Regarding a hackle pack, have you seen the Whiting Variety Pack? You can find it by visiting the below URL - I believe that this is what you're looking for:
