I only buy #2 grade hackles. You should be fine with those for down to 18. As to colors for dry flies, you can tie almost everything fished around here with brown, grizzly and medium blue dun.

I also buy Whiting 1/2 necks to save on price. There are plenty of feathers on them. Oh, beware saddle patches with a limited range of sizes, and usually bigger than you want. Necks have a wide range of sizes, and are better for the more casual dry fly tyer.
