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.
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!
The ebook on working with feathers provides many excellent tips for tying better looking and better performing flies when using feathers. The only drawback (not an ebook issue) is not all of us buy a full skin such that mating the feathers for size and curvature is straight forward.
Great illustrations and advice.
