After teaching fly tying for several years, I have come to the realization that feathers cause more confusion and frustration than any other material. For both beginning fly tiers and seasoned pros alike (Yours Truly included), keeping them secured straight and even on the hook is a onerous chore that can suck the fun right out of fly tying. For that reason I created this free eBook to help you along the way.
Just complete the checkout and you'll be sent this free PDF eBook and added to my monthly fly tying newsletter with free tips, tricks, patterns and more.
So far so good, very helpful, still working/reading through it.
Drew's greatest gift to all of us who strive to be better tiers is the way he thinks about fly function and then fly design and is able to convey his insights so clearly through words and excellent, large photos. If you just picked up your first vice this winter or have been tying for 20 years, you'll love this eBook.
Alot of great tips on how to prevent your materials from rolling on the hook while securing. Included are several other tips/tricks for working with feathers. Found it to be very helpful.
Good information. Short for a "book".
I am new to tying and then s ebook answered so many questions that I have had trying to get started tying flies. Some of it seems like common sense ( like matching your feathers) but only after you have been frustrated with the way your flies look before getting Drew's tips. Lots of "aha" moments! How Guly recommended!
