Cape Grading

Grade #1 - These capes are our best!. These are for the tyer who wants to work with the best possible tying materials. These capes are very large with high feather counts. The individual feathers will have very stiff barbules and have a beautiful sheen. These capes will have the largest range of feather sizes.

Grade #2 - These capes are just a cut below our very high standard of the #1. Typically these capes will be very similar to the top grade but they run a bit smaller in overall size and not as high in feather count.

Grade #3 - A great value for the tyer who cranks out fishing flies. These capes are from the same genetic stock as our top grade skins but they have some slight imperfections. Most often these capes have lower feather counts, a few feathers missing or some broken feather tips.
