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 avoided using married hackles for years because I could never get them to lay correctly. Just a quick read through Drew's ebook, and a little practice, and problems solved. Thanks, Drew!
Prior to downloading and reading the tips from the Feathers eBook, I had purchased Drew's "Feather Brain." If you want tremendous insight into everything about fly tying, this guy knows what he is talking about.
Well written, concise reference on using feathers in fly tying. I will be using this mini manual as I start my fly tying experience!!
Very well written, I found a couple of ways to do things easier.
Man, I've been tying for years, and I have been quite happy with what I was achieving,
3 or 4 tips in here that make complete sense , and can be utilised on other various materials, I'm sure.
I can see myself adjusting my age old methods a wee bit and tying not only faster, but most likely some tidier flies.
Cheers Drew....... very much appreciated !
