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.
I've been struggling with some aspects of using feathers in my fly tying for years. I just couldn't get everything to lay the way I wanted. This handy little e-book gave me the answers to fix my problems.
I thought I was doing everything right until I read the book!!! I personally thought my flies couldn't get any better until I followed the instructions in the book!!! My fly game was upped immediately after reading this book!!!
Thank you to Drew Chicone for writing it!!!
As a beginner, I’ve found Drew’s instructions extremely helpful and has removed some initial frustrations. These materials have also helped master the basics before moving into more advanced tying techniques. Well done!
This book is fantastic!! It’s a treasure trove of information. As for me I am new to fly fishing and tying flies. This book has helped me tremendously. So if you’re a novice or a newbie this book will help you too.
It is well written with everyone in mind.
I highly recommend it.
Thank You for your time.
This ebook has very useful information. I am new to tying and have made several of the mistakes shown in the Feathers ebook. The pictures were very helpful, as I am a visual learner. The only criticism I have is, I wish the book was longer.
Feathers - Tips, Tricks & Common Mistakes (eBook)
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.
A great feather reference guide that’s full of great tips that I passed along to the flytyers in our Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing group.
Good information about common problems. I will keep the book and review when tying with feathers.
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
