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.

Feathers - Tips, Tricks & Common Mistakes (eBook)

Joe O'Connor
"Common Mistakes" hit home and got my complete attention through out the rest of the e-book!

As a participating volunteer in Platte Rivers Veterans Fly Fishing as a civilian mentor, guide, board member and fly-tying instructor, I am always seeking out new ideas and techniques as well as "friendly" reminders of my own bad habits when it comes to fly tying. Drew's eBook, "Feathers - Tips, Tricks & Common Mistakes" has already inspired me to pass along my learning on to our Veteran participants and instructors. The photography offers a clear understanding on how to fix a bad habit, learn a new skill and make ones self a better tier regardless of skillset or experience. As a complete newbie to the saltwater inshore game here in South Central Texas, I need all the help I can get and Salty Fly tying has become a staple for me as I transition from size 24 tailwater flies to the endless spectrum of patterns used in the bays of this region. You are missing out by not consuming Drew's content and written works.
Thank You!

Very Helpful

For someone like myself who avoids tying with feathers, I found the information in this book to be very beneficial. I recommend this book to anyone who struggles with feathers

Good solid advice

I’ve been tying for decades and it never occurred to me that I was winding thread tight with my wrapping technique. Great observation. This compilation of tips and tricks for feather handling is a great resource, particularly for those younger tiers who may be cutting their teeth on synthetics more than natural materials. Nice work.

All of the tips in the Feathers article will not be found another tying guides, but they are simple ways to make tying feathers easier with less wasted material. Thanks for the article.
