René Harrop... Master fly tyer and artist, guides you through tying with turkey feathers on seven versatile patterns. Turkey Biots are the un-stripped quill feather and make amazingly realistic wing material. About twice as long as goose biots, turkey biots are suitable for larger flies, and being somewhat translucent, they can be used over a tapered dubbed underbody for an exciting effect or as a realistic wing material. Turkey Hackle, Flats & Fibers... Long fibers with even tips that are wonderful for legs, tails and antennae for nymphs and emergers. These broad square tipped feathers are great for parachute, thorax and divided wing dry flies, or even a tent wing for caddis or wing cases for nymphs. Lear to tie: Mayfly Nymph, Green Drake Boit Emerger, BWO Boit Parachute, BWO Boit Standard Dry, Brown Boit Spent Caddis, Yellow Boit Stonefly, and BWO Boit No Hackle.
