WARNING! Fly tying just got sexy!
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.
