Marrying Feathers for Wings
In this class you will learn the technique of marrying feather slips together to create feather wings. This style of wing is used in many Classic Atlantic Salmon patterns as well as classic wet fly patterns. Several steelhead patterns have incorporated this style of wing. Other applications of this technique include tails, tail veilings, and sides. Selecting and preparing the feathers will be included as well as comparison of types of feathers and their marrying characteristics. Mounting your feather creations will be included so bring your vise and basic tools along with black or white thread. The thread should be able to be spun flat. Size of thread should be 8/0.
