A Message to Our Customers

Friends, first week of July and our last week here at 813 Bethel Rd. in Columbus. The end of an era for sure, but the beginning of an exciting new one as well. Coming soon... MRO 2.0!

We are packing things up this week and getting ready for the "big move" which begins next week. During this time of moving the shop, we will be closing things up completely and unable to conduct business in our normal fashion. Here is what is happening this week:

• The online store will shut down for orders this Thursday, July 9th at 6:00 p.m. All orders placed before that time will be processed and shipped as usual.
• Curbside pick-ups of said orders will be available until close of business on Saturday, July 11th at 5:00 p.m.
• We will be closed for business completely from July 12th- July 26th and hope to resume "Normal Operations" in our new location, 833 Bethel Rd., on July 27th. We'll keep you informed if this changes.

Please see our Blog for videos, information and updates.

We thank you for your patience and support of Mad River Outfitters during this transition and upgrade to our business!

Coq de Leon Hen Saddle

- speckled burnt orange


There is nothing like the buggy, speckled, badgery goodness that these feathers bring to a fly. We use these around here for a variety of uses. The speckled burnt orange color makes for some great crayfish patterns.

Please register below to be notified when it arrives. Should be back in stock soon! Please be sure to give us a call if you have any questions.

The Coq de Leon Hen Saddles from Whiting Farms are much sought after and fairly hard to come by. Coq de Leon is the oldest known chicken strain specifically bred for fly tying feathers.There is nothing like the buggy, speckled, badgery goodness that these feathers bring to a fly. We use these around here for a variety of uses.

Most often sought as a tailing material and legs on wet flies and nymphs but also make for some great collar hackle as well on a variety of soft hackle and streamer patterns. Many of the feathers are large enough to tie some amazing looking Matuka style streamrers.  Feathers can be burned with a wing burner to make some cool looking mottled mayfly wings. Most excellent on March Brown and Drake style flies!

You'll find a wide variety of sizes of feathers here and will be using this saddle for a long, long time.

Whiting Farms Coq de Leon Hen Saddle available here in the Speckled Burnt Orange color. It makes for some wicked crayfish patterns. Whiting item #52802650.
