thanks cf 92 ,i havent read taht article and i really need to subscribe to that magazine its been years since i bought it ,any how i use deerhair in a lot of flies ,usually because the reiepe calls for it ,emergers half hogs sedgehogs muddlers to name but a few ,for me you need to learn to tame it so you can manipulate it to its desired profile ,which takes a lot of time /practice and p atientence and less we not forget cleaning up after it , but alas ,i now like using it , i have deerhair in a variety of colours now and find theres always a new pattern calling for it, a fly tier without it is missing out imo

Hi Karl, If you've never tied or/are only just starting to tie, then this type of pattern will be in the "difficult" category for you. The materials, are not found in most "starter kits" either.

Don't try & run marathons before you learn to walk. There is plenty of info available these days, here, on the net, books etc etc & once the lockdowns have finished, see if you can get some 1 to 1 help or if there's a branch of the Fly Dressers Guild (see next section down the main page) Join it, as it's the best & fastest way to learn.
