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.
Great info and written with easy to follow instructions
This is great information for some helpful hints to tie better flies.
Having just started down the path to feather addiction I was impressed by some of the common sense approaches to some fairly ordinary tying applications. La, the idea of just tightening by pulling up so there’s no pressure to roll the feathers!
Priceless instruction and concisely presented including the wrong way to accomplish a task!
Very helpful as it goes through very simple and practical ways to improve one’s flies and fly tying. You don’t need to be an expert at the bench to gain from this work. I frequently caught myself saying “that makes perfect sense and why didn’t I think of that long ago.” Helps improve efficiency and a quality of my fly tying. Thanks for the tips.
So far so good, very helpful, still working/reading through it.
