Howard Hackle is pleased to announce that Chris and Patty Wigg of Lanesboro, MN USA have purchased our breeding stock and now have quality hackle for purchase at www.rootriverhackle.com. For our Canadian customers, we still have some hackle for sale at Canadian prices.

Howard Hackle is a family operated hackle farm located in Alberta, Canada only an hour from the scenic Bow River, one of the North America's top sport fishing rivers.

We continually strive to increase the quality of our hackle. Our bird's have been bred from the finest quality genetic stock, imported from the USA. A very knowledgeable geneticist assists with the selection of hens and roosters. Our high quality stock is constantly improving.

We live in a cold and harsh climate where temperatures range from 80°F in the summer to lows of -45°F in the winter. This leads to enhanced quality as the birds adapt with increased feather population and barb count.

Try our feathers today. You will be glad you did.
