Fly tying can be a patience testing, time consuming hobby, but there are little ways to make it a bit easier on you. When I first began doing small commercial tying orders around 19 years old, I learned very quickly that the faster I could tie the more I could ultimately make. These are just a couple things that will save you a few extra minutes per session on the vice.
Peacock herl is a great material for an array of flies but often becomes too bulky & hard to glue without ruining its iridescence. One use for peacock herl that is often overlooked is stripping the fibres and using the quill as a body material. It creates beautiful segmentation as well as a very natural looking colour for a chironomid pupa.
