There are a few things that will lead to succes when tying with deer hair. For me one of the most important is using a quality sharp razor instead of scissors. It's the best way if your doing a curved head on a streamer to use the old school razor blades for shaving because they are so thin you can bend them to desired shape.
Deer hair flies have always fascinated me and i really enjoy tying them. It can be a pretty messy material but certainly is worth the trouble when you see how they look in the water.
Got a couple spots left in the streamer tying class starting wednesday night and you know we will be doing a class on tying with deer hair. We also have these razors available for purchase at the shop now to.
