detdesc::Fly Fishing for Permit

  • For most of us, fly fishing for permit is more an obsession than it is a sport.  There's just something alluring and magical about this animal.  Maybe that's why we go to great lengths to travel to exotic destinations, ignoring other sporting fish in search of only permit.  With big, doll-like eyes and a nervous spirit, getting a permit to eat a fly is far from guaranteed.  To hedge your bet for success, it's a good idea to arrive prepared with a practiced cast and the right fly rod.
  • Scott S4S 9' #10 fly rod is just such a fly rod.  Most people might think a #9 fly rod is a good choice.  At Leland, we've found that a #10 (specifically this #10) fly rod more accurately delivers the clunky crab flies that permit seem to love.  With controlled distance, accuracy and a subtle presentation, your odds of going tight to a permit get much better.  And when you do finally hook a permit, you'll be happy that you have just a bit more fish-fighting power in the butt section of this fly rod.  Of course, this Scott fly rod is appointed with only the best, saltwater-safe components and is artfully finished with tight thread wrappings and clean epoxy work.  Add it all up and this is your new favorite permit fly rod.

Leland on Whiting 100's

Dry fly hackle can be a joy to work with, but if you don't have the right material at your fly tying bench or in your vise, your good experience can turn sour in the blink of an eye. It can be frustrating pick up a stack of saddle hackle feathers with the goal of finding a strand of the right size and the right quality. In short, it can feel worse than looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack. A while back, Whiting Farms took on this common frustration and developed a product that has since solved the problem and as a result, Whiting has rapidly secured its place at the head of the dry fly hackle table. Whiting 100's are pre-sized saddle hackle feathers grown and harvested by the world's biggest and best producer of dry fly hackle. These top quality hackle feathers are pre-sized - no more fumbling and guessing at the hackle sizing game. The quills are supple, easy to work with, and a joy to wrap around the hook shank! To top it all off, Whiting packs its 100's with enough usable material to tie 100 flies! Whiting 100's are simply the best dry fly hackle packs, period.

Leland on Hackle

Technically, hackle refers to another group of feather, but for the fly tyer, hackle truly encompasses a world of its own. Hackle is taken from both roosters and hens and these feathers are found on two different parts of the bird. "Saddle" hackle is found on the backside of the bird, while a hackle "cape" consists of the neck and shoulders of the bird.



Traditionally, hackle techniques have been more important to those interested in tying and fishing dry flies because of a hackle collar's ability to render a fly more buoyant. Both cape and saddle hackle can be useful for tyers interested in creating this effect. However, there are a host of wet fly patterns that require hackle as well. This wet-hackle is usually taken from the saddle of a hen which contains a great number of shorter, more thickly webbed feathers. These feathers are commonly referred to as "schlappen," and many Spey patterns also require this type of webbed hackle feather.



Always consider the structural properties of the hackle you select. Dry fly hackle should be stiff and strong to support the fly and assist with floatation. Wet fly hackle must be heavily webbed and will give the fly better movement and water absorption when the fly is actually fished.

Leland on Whiting Farms

Since the mid-1960's when Henry Hoffman started thinking hard about breeding poultry to supply better dry fly hackle, Whiting Farms has steadily built a storied tradition of producing the best dry fly hackle on the planet. Today, this three-ranch operation is run out of Colorado and supplies fly tying operations and fly tying retailers throughout the world. But Whiting Farms was not built on poultry genetics or feathers alone, Whiting Farms was built on passion. Today, Henry Hoffman's attention to detail, innovative spirit, and work ethic are carried firmly on the shoulders of the outstanding genetic hackle products offered by Whiting Farms.

Whiting Farms on Whiting 100's

"One of the most popular fly tying products ever produced, the Whiting 100's Saddle Hackle packs offer convenience beyond compare! The pre-sized Whiting genetic saddle hackle is conveniently accessible within its own protective cardboard backer, clearly labeled and ready for tying 100 or more flies per pack.



The packs come in a wide variety of sizes from #8 to #22 with #24's and #26's available in limited colors. The most popular colors are: Grizzly, Brown, Medium Dun, Black, White, Ginger, Light Dun, Medium Ginger, Coachman, and Light Ginger.



There's no easier way to crank out a dozen flies on a moment's notice than with Whiting 100's Saddle Hackle Packs. Don't be confused by imposters or copy-cats, there's only one genuine Whiting 100's Pack!"

Whiting Farms on Whiting Farms

"Whiting Farms operates on three primary ranches in western Colorado with a central processing, shipping and administrative facility. From these facilities, five major genetic product lines and over 15 minor breed lines are raised to stock 800+ products and generate 100,000+ product unit sales annually, making Whiting the most comprehensive and genetically unique fly tying feather grower today.



Whiting Farms sells feather products world-wide, selling in over 50 countries. Whiting also has a substantial commercial business, selling to fly tying operations in Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, the Philippines, China, Kenya, South Africa, Columbia, Bhutan and Mexico.



Today, Whiting Farms strives to be the clear leader in the continuous advancement and innovation of fly tying feathers."

Whiting Farms on the History of Whiting Farms

"From the mid 1960's until 1989 Henry Hoffman of Warrenton, Oregon devoted his life to producing the best dry fly hackle in the world. His primary motivation was an all-consuming, life-long love of fishing. As an offshoot to this intense interest in fishing Henry also learned to tie flies, often by taking apart lost flies he found on the stream bank while out fishing.



Fortunately (for himself and the world) Henry was born into the right situation. His parents had a small meat chicken breeding operation in California, so Henry grew up learning the basics of breeder selection and poultry husbandry. After a stint in the military, Henry settled in Oregon and made his living tying fishing flies commercially, predominantly dry flies.



In the 1960's good quality feathers for tying dry flies were nearly impossible to obtain and tiers had to rely on very poor quality capes imported from India or China - basically pelted village chickens. In addition, the black and white barred pattern feathers, called grizzly, did not exist in the village chickens, thus major fly patterns which required grizzly hackle garnered a premium price. Therefore, Henry set out in the mid 1960's to find grizzly chickens to raise for his own tying needs and potentially to develop into a marketable genetic hackle line. He searched amongst the county fairs and poultry fanciers in the Pacific Northwest and finally found an exceptional trio of Barred Plymouth Rock bantams. Incredibly, they exhibited excellent (for that time) dry fly capes and also a respectable dry fly saddle. By Henry's own estimation these initial birds saved him 10 years of development; and he was off and running.



Because Henry Hoffman was a commercial fly tier, using the hackle in his own work, he brought an end-user's perspective to his breeder selection. Literally he'd tie flies with the feathers and the best tying feathers determined which roosters became the sires for the next generation. This tying performance criteria put Henry's breeding program in a league of its own and earned the Hoffman Hackle rave reviews and near mythical devotion.



In raising the world's finest grizzly hackle, Henry Hoffman had several factors in his favor: a) being passionate about fishing and fly tying, b) having a directly applicable family upbringing, c) finding truly exceptional foundation stock, and d) directing the stock's genetic development by personally using their feathers.



Henry did three other particularly fortunate things which are even more impressive:

First, he confined his breeding program exclusively to Grizzly for the first 15 years, thus focusing on only one color (also the most important), which greatly accelerated progress.

Secondly, Henry conceived and meticulously developed the first and unquestionably the best dry fly saddle hackle, thus bringing to the tying world a major fly tying innovation.

And the final unique aspect of Henry was he preferred to stay small and focus on quality instead of quantity. The Hoffman operation only grew to 2,200 roosters a year and was essentially a ma pa operation where Henry and his wife Joyce did nearly everything. Even the family helped out, including Henry's elderly mother and father.



By the 1980's the Hoffman Grizzly was world famous, almost legendary and very coveted. The dry fly saddles had progressed markedly and were totally unique, having to be seen to be believed, with individual feathers up to 12 inches long! Henry had also expanded his color range to include white and brown, the other essentials in fly tying. But Henry wanted to get out from under the all-consuming work load and drudgery of his business before he was too old to enjoy an extended retirement of fishing. So he put his life's work up for sale. Many were understandably interested, but few had all the necessary skills to develop further the potential in the Hoffman gene pool. Needed was knowledge and ability in poultry genetics, production and processing, and an equally serious willingness and commitment to devote their professional life to this long term endeavor.



After 5 years of trying to sell his business Henry Hoffman eventually agreed to a deal with Thomas Whiting of Colorado. Tom was then finishing his Ph.D. at the University of Arkansas, and also had an M.S. degree from the University of Georgia and a B.S. degree from Colorado State University, always specializing in his particular areas of interest - poultry genetics and husbandry. In addition Tom had considerable industrial poultry experience in managing a commercial egg production complex in Colorado that produced 3 million eggs per week. Henry agreed to consult for 5 years to transfer his knowledge and to initially preserve continuity in the breeding program.



Whiting chose western Colorado to set up the new venture, and in April 1989 hatched out his first Hoffman Hackle chicks there from eggs sent to him by Henry from Oregon. In addition Whiting Farms acquired the another quality genetic dry fly hackle stock in 1997, known as Hebert Hackle, to complement its existing genetic pool and product line. The Hebert/Miner(tm) hackle stock is reknown for incredible dry fly capes and the widest, best and most unique array of natural colors of any hackle stock in the world.

From about 5,000 birds that first year (1989) to over 125,000 total birds harvested in 2000, Whiting Farms has risen to become the largest fly tying feather producer in the world market. In addition, Dr. Whiting has cultivated numerous new natural colors, 20 now and expanding.



Whiting Farms has production on three primary ranches in western Colorado with a central processing, shipping and administrative facility. Also, Dr. Whiting has developed an "American Hackle" chicken line specifically bred for salt water and other wet flies. Coq de Leon feather birds from Spain that provide fly tying feathers are also being raised, and several other feather birds are under development as well for future proprietary products.



With continual genetic progress, Whiting Farms has been able to develop ever increasing quality, value and selection to the fly tiers all over the world. Recent genetic breakthroughs have allowed the creation of a dry fly hackle superior to any ever seen before, and so a new product line was announced in the Summer of 1998; the Whiting Platinum dry fly hackle. To accommodate an across the board quality improvement in all product lines, Whiting Farms introduced for the 1999/2000 sales season the Olympic medal grade designations of Gold, Silver and Bronze. The purpose of this grade re-designation and upgrade was to pass on the genetic and husbandry advances at Whiting Farms to the fly tiers of the world and to further distinguish Whiting Farms' quality superiority. Basically the Whiting Farms Bronze grade is as good as and often better than any competitor's top grade. And the Silver, Gold and Platinum grades are beyond all others. Further genetic advances have made possible an even higher plateau of quality available to fly tiers with the introduction of the "Ultra Platinum" cape and the "Midge" saddle in the fall of 2001.



Genetic hackle is predominantly an American product; there are only about a dozen producers presently, all but two of which are in the United States. Never the less Whiting Farms sells their feather products world-wide. Japan is their largest single foreign market, with Canada, the European countries, Australia and New Zealand buying considerable quantities. Commercial fly tying factories in Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, the Philippines, China, Kenya, South Africa, Columbia, Bhutan and Mexico are also supplied by Whiting Farms. Newly developing consumer markets are also expanding in Argentina, Chile, South Africa, South Korea and the former Soviet Union countries. In all Whiting Farms sells their products into 36 countries and 48 states.



In June 1997, Whiting Farms, along with several other western Colorado fly fishing equipment manufacturers, was selected to provide their product for the official gifts from the State of Colorado to the world leaders attending the Summit of Eight meeting in Denver.



In May 1998, in conjunction with the National Small Business Week, Whiting Farms, Inc. was recognized for its success with three awards. The Small Business Exporter of the Year Award was presented to Whiting Farms by the Small Business Administration for both the State of Colorado and the SBA Region VIII (Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, and North and South Dakotas). Whiting Farms was also given the Pioneer Spirit Award by the Delta Colorado Area Chamber of Commerce in recognition of the company's rapid growth and contribution to the area economy.



In August 2001 the Federation of Fly Fishers awarded Whiting Farms, Inc. the prestigious Lee Wulff award for their innovations and contributions to the world of fly fishing."

Leland on Hackle

Technically, hackle refers to another group of feather, but for the fly tyer, hackle truly encompasses a world of its own. Hackle is taken from both roosters and hens and these feathers are found on two different parts of the bird. "Saddle" hackle is found on the backside of the bird, while a hackle "cape" consists of the neck and shoulders of the bird.



Traditionally, hackle techniques have been more important to those interested in tying and fishing dry flies because of a hackle collar's ability to render a fly more buoyant. Both cape and saddle hackle can be useful for tyers interested in creating this effect. However, there are a host of wet fly patterns that require hackle as well. This wet-hackle is usually taken from the saddle of a hen which contains a great number of shorter, more thickly webbed feathers. These feathers are commonly referred to as "schlappen," and many Spey patterns also require this type of webbed hackle feather.



Always consider the structural properties of the hackle you select. Dry fly hackle should be stiff and strong to support the fly and assist with floatation. Wet fly hackle must be heavily webbed and will give the fly better movement and water absorption when the fly is actually fished.

Leland on Whiting Farms

Since the mid-1960's when Henry Hoffman started thinking hard about breeding poultry to supply better dry fly hackle, Whiting Farms has steadily built a storied tradition of producing the best dry fly hackle on the planet. Today, this three-ranch operation is run out of Colorado and supplies fly tying operations and fly tying retailers throughout the world. But Whiting Farms was not built on poultry genetics or feathers alone, Whiting Farms was built on passion. Today, Henry Hoffman's attention to detail, innovative spirit, and work ethic are carried firmly on the shoulders of the outstanding genetic hackle products offered by Whiting Farms.

Whiting Farms on Whiting 100's

"One of the most popular fly tying products ever produced, the Whiting 100's Saddle Hackle packs offer convenience beyond compare!

Whiting Farms sells feather products world-wide, selling in over 50 countries. Whiting also has a substantial commercial business, selling to fly tying operations in Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, the Philippines, China, Kenya, South Africa, Columbia, Bhutan and Mexico.



Today, Whiting Farms strives to be the clear leader in the continuous advancement and innovation of fly tying feathers."

Whiting Farms on the History of Whiting Farms

"From the mid 1960's until 1989 Henry Hoffman of Warrenton, Oregon devoted his life to producing the best dry fly hackle in the world. His primary motivation was an all-consuming, life-long love of fishing. As an offshoot to this intense interest in fishing Henry also learned to tie flies, often by taking apart lost flies he found on the stream bank while out fishing.



Fortunately (for himself and the world) Henry was born into the right situation. His parents had a small meat chicken breeding operation in California, so Henry grew up learning the basics of breeder selection and poultry husbandry. After a stint in the military, Henry settled in Oregon and made his living tying fishing flies commercially, predominantly dry flies.

Leland on Airflo With a huge following in their native UK and across Europe, Airflo is undoubtedly one of the preeminent names in fly line manufacturing. Since their start in the late 1980s under UK angler Paul Burgess - when they defined themselves through a move away from the traditional solvent-based PVC fly line technology of the day - Airflo has stayed at the forefront of fly line design and development, with a slew of patents to show their industry leadership. Airflo was the first firm to develop density compensation (DC) and the welded loop, which are now industry standards. One of the largest selling points about Airflo lines is their longevity, which has its source in the material used in manufacture: polyurethane (PU). Like other urethanes, which are used in car dashboards, boat paints, and car paints, PU is highly resistant to UV and chemical damage, and won't leak solvents over time to crack as other fly lines can. Integral to the long-lasting performance of Airflo lines is Airflo's two-layer extrusion method, called Polyfuse XT. Utilizing a specialized extruder which is like a 'nozzle inside a nozzle', Airflo can seal two separate layers of polyurethane around a fly line core, and adjust the ratios of each material as the core passes out the extruder. The middle layer contains the defining elements of the line (whether microballoons, for flotation, or metal dust, for sinking ability) while the outer layer seals the line and contains all the slick-shooting properties that should be concentrated on the exterior. As a result, Airflo lines are less porous and consistently last longer. Whether you've been fishing Airflo for years, or have just started to catch wind of their virtues, you should know that Airflo fly lines are hugely impressive, and Leland is thrilled to have the opportunity to carry them.

detdesc::Leland on the Airflo Scandinavian Compact Fly Line





Also commonly known as Compact Scandi spey heads or shooting heads, the Airflo Scandinavian Compact fly lines are ideal for summer two handed fishing in the Pacific Northwest, or any time you need to cover a lot of water in your search for active anadromous or potadromous fish. When paired with an Airflo Polyleader, the Scandinavian Compact two handed shooting head is the perfect line for slinging a Silver Hilton during summer mornings on the Umpqua, or fall evenings on the Deschutes.

Leland on Airflo With a huge following in their native UK and across Europe, Airflo is undoubtedly one of the preeminent names in fly line manufacturing. Since their start in the late 1980s under UK angler Paul Burgess - when they defined themselves through a move away from the traditional solvent-based PVC fly line technology of the day - Airflo has stayed at the forefront of fly line design and development, with a slew of patents to show their industry leadership. Airflo was the first firm to develop density compensation (DC) and the welded loop, which are now industry standards. One of the largest selling points about Airflo lines is their longevity, which has its source in the material used in manufacture: polyurethane (PU). Like other urethanes, which are used in car dashboards, boat paints, and car paints, PU is highly resistant to UV and chemical damage, and won't leak solvents over time to crack as other fly lines can. Integral to the long-lasting performance of Airflo lines is Airflo's two-layer extrusion method, called Polyfuse XT. Utilizing a specialized extruder which is like a 'nozzle inside a nozzle', Airflo can seal two separate layers of polyurethane around a fly line core, and adjust the ratios of each material as the core passes out the extruder. The middle layer contains the defining elements of the line (whether microballoons, for flotation, or metal dust, for sinking ability) while the outer layer seals the line and contains all the slick-shooting properties that should be concentrated on the exterior. As a result, Airflo lines are less porous and consistently last longer. Whether you've been fishing Airflo for years, or have just started to catch wind of their virtues, you should know that Airflo fly lines are hugely impressive, and Leland is thrilled to have the opportunity to carry them.
