Hello I'm far from a professional, but this blog is to help folks figure out things about single handed and double handed rods. Yes there are some egg-beaters in here, but I use flies on those also. Sit back and enjoy my ramblings, and bad sentence structure!

Hackle Fresh from field "well last year"

It really pays off to become friends with people who hunt! I have been blessed to have a few friends that brought me back a few birds last year and here are some of the hackles! The colorations are to die for, and obviously a fly shop would kill to have such quality! Now if I could only tye well to give these hackles the spotlight they deserve!
