    Default Keep a eye on your hackle.

    My wife is a hairdresser and I caught her trying to snag some of my hackle. Chicks are paying 25 bucks for three feathers to put in their hair.W T F

    Give her 3 long stems of peacock feathers and tell her how nice she'll look wearing them, maybe that'll cure her.

    Watch your UV flash as well, that is taking on a life of it's own as well.

    I must hang with a different crowd, I can't say I've seen women running around these parts with feathers in their hair. Maybe I'm just not observant enough...

    I was in the fly shop not far from where I live and noticed a stunning woman browsing through the necks and saddles. I asked if she was a fly tyer, but before she answered warned her that a marriage proposal was riding on her response. She was a hairdresser (She was hot, but I'm happy to still be single!)

    You have to elevate your line of vision & concentration to above the neck.

    Ok serious now (but just for a minute), have any of you actually had a hard time finding hackles? My wife raises chickens and a variety of game birds. We used to save the hackles but couldn't give the things away.
    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,
    Teach a man to fish and he'll also learn to drink, lie, and avoid the honey do list.

    Long dry fly saddle hackle isn't the same as your garden variety rooster hackle. There is a lot of selective breeding that goes into getting the best genetics to produce long, skinny hackle fibers. They're going on ebay for about 4 times what they used to.
