WHITING FARMS Coq-de-Leon Tailing Packs & Coq-de-Leon Mayfly Tailing Packs
COQ DE LEON TAILING
The ultimate tailing material. Unique speckling and stiff fibers. Whiting Farms offers these tailing feathers in convenient packs.
COQ DE LEON MAYFLY TAILING
All the mayfly colors you’ll need. Each mayfly tailing pack offers tailing for both dry flies and nymphs. The balance and performance of a quality dry fly is optimized by a resilient and glossy tailing fiber to mimic the natural. Synthetic materials are too stiff, puncturing the water surface and sinking a dry fly faster. The naturally stiff yet supple characteristics of the Coq de Leon humoral tract feathers have been the tailing material of choice for centuries.
Coq de Leon roosters are the oldest genetic chicken line bred for fly tying feathers. Dating back several hundred years, these roosters have traditionally been bred only in Spain. Since the mid-1990’s, Whiting Farms has continued the tradition by raising authentic Coq de Leon rooster stock from Spain. Whiting Farms is the only commercial breeder of Coq de Leon outside of Spain.
