White Wulff Hackle

Can anyone tell me of a substitute for "Light Badger" hackle used to tie a White Wulff? I'm having difficulty finding light badger locally. I normally don't like to purchase hackle online. I usually like to see the hackle before buying.

Plain ol' white will certainly work. If you want sort of faux badger look, wind a black ostrich herl through the hackle.

Or you could take a cream or very light ginger hackle and run a black marker up the center to produce the width of "badger" stripe you want to end up with.

Fly patterns are made to be messed with, jury rigged and re-imagined like a pizza with 50 potential toppings to choose from. For me at least, this is a good part of the satisfaction I get from tying.

Hey,

Thanks to all who responded. I plan on trying all of the above and see what happens.
