Holiday Gift Guide, Day 10

Whiting Brahma Hen
Every once in a while we stumble upon a tying material we knew was out there but never tried.  I knew about Bramha Hen for a while before I tried it and finally realized that I had been missing out for a while.  I generally use the hen saddle in various colors as well as the soft hackle with chickabou.  The chickabou can be used for small buggers or wings on an RS2.  If you tie a lot of flies with soft hacks tails, this is perfect.  Think Gunkel's Radiation Baetis and Two-Bit Hookers.  For legs on stoneflies, this again is perfect.  Think legs on Pennington's D-Rib Goldenstone, or legs on a 20 Incher.  At a price that is affordable, you're able to purchase multiple colors.  So get this info over to someone so you can get one or two or three under the tree.  Check with your local fly shop to see if they have them.  Check out the colors here:
