    I hear alot about Greys and Roundheads being the best choice for gaff. That''s what I'm going with. I have a trio of regular greys now, looking for a trio of Lacys.

    You must have a solid family of hatch first. You've got to have bottom and tenacity. Most people worry too much about cut. Don't get me wrong. I agree it must be their, but eventually your going to meet birds that are as accurate as you. You'll be happy you have some solid hatch to keep them going.

    I would have for long gaff

    GL Hatch, Claret and Allan RHs

    Another option would be Whitehackle, Claret and Allan RHs but only if I couldn't get a hatch line from Butch........

    Cheers

    I think a lot of y'all are missing it almost any breed is good for the gaff. Before there was knife there was nothing but gaff in the US.

    What I would do is go to the yards of men that showed mostly gaff as they'd likely still have the game ones. But u can go almost any breed.

    Any good breed can win int he gaff pure. I used to always show pure fowl in the gaff until the laws are what they are now. I more then held my own and made a lot of people shake their heads. I had some people ask me what the hell did I bring. LOL Good fowl in good health can compete in any weapon. If I had to choose 3 breeds man it would be tough. I would go with maybe blues, asils, and Murphys. Do not get me wrong everything on my yard compliments each other well. The thread is what 3 breeds. Hell I could take any 3 breeds on my yard and do well if laws was not what they are now.

    I would have to say bar none a good honest family of hatch. From there you could go with a number of speed type fowl. Myself hatch/roundhead, hatch/brownreds,or hatch/muggs. Most all your hatch cross good with black blood. Seen alot of fights won back in the day with these crosses.

    a hatch line for power and gameness
    a kelso line for the speed
    a roundhead line for the cut
    a blend of these 3 lines will give you what your looking for....
    nameing 3 breeds is easy to do...but what are the traits they give their offspring and do they enhance the other bloodlines you use to cross them with ?

    if you are going to fight gaff, focus on getting the hatch first. you want hatch that will fight blind, coupeled and rattled . i dont mean pecking or defending its self i mean attacking in these conditions. you need true gamness to win in the gaff. speed and cut familys are a dime a dozzen but a true dead game family are not so easy to find. just becouse it has green legs and is called a hatch does not mean its game so good luck!!! if it was legal thats what i would use.

    I was taught straight combs where always gamer, tougher and had more power in the dragg and I think thats something you need in the gaff.

    this isn't me being rude or anything so please don't take it as me callin you out.. but some of the most gamest fowl are pea comb.. like the pea comb doc robinsons.. the more you hit them the madder they get and harder they fight...

    i was all wayss taught anything with pea comb means it has asil in it.... and as we know most asils are very dead game...
