WARNING! Fly tying just got sexy!

Posted by 'Yard - April 15, 2011 - Random - 2 Comments

If you’re a fly tier, you probably heard the hype about the shortage of quality hackle feathers available at your local fly shop. The major cause… a women’s hair fashion fad that is making it nearly impossible to keep these feathers in stock. While it doesn’t really affect us here at shooting head, because 1. we don’t tie dry flies, 2. we literally have a fly shop worth of materials sitting in bins doing nothing but waiting for bug infestations or rodents. 3. we don’t tie dry flies.

But after about 30 seconds of actual research on the “chick’s took’r feathers” scandal… got side tracked by photos of chicks with feather tattoo’s. So it wouldn’t be ShootingHead, if I didn’t share the goods… Enjoy.

    Nice. I have a post saved that I was writing for the hatchless blog on the subject of the hackle shortage. I never posted it for reasons 1 and 3. Maybe tonight I will post it after of course I edit and link this post. You pretty much nailed it. We don’t spend a lot of time tying dries either. If they start wearing schlappen… then we have problems. Solid post man. Solid.
