    High quality gauge - 3/7/2015

    I am normally a big streamer kind of guy looking for those trophy fish but recently bought an Orvis Recon 9' 4wt for med-small trout/bass and decided to get serious about the dry fly fishing/tying... So I purchaed this guage and was very surprised how thin it is and compact! It stays out of the way when not in use.

    Pricy widget, but well worth it until you develop an eye for the correct size hackle.

    Not only do Whiting Farms supply the best dry fly hackle, they also do a really good job with this hackle gauge. Nice ergonomics and very well made. Helps to ensure you get the correct hackle length and assists in producing uniform / consistent flies.

    Sometimes you need a hackle gauge to measure the correct hackle size even when you are experienced. This is by far the best made and most functional hackle gauge on the market. I don not use mine attached to the vise stem. Just use it hand-held.

    its a simple and very elegant looking hackle gauge, love the fact the it measure all the way down to a #26 hackle and that the measuring lines are not really lines but intervals.
