Super Fly's Flock Of Birds

Do you remember the spun deer hair Carolina Wren that Pat Cohen of Super Fly tied for our daughter late last year?  Amazing work and Hadley was astounded by it.  Since then Pat has added quite a few other spun deer hair birds to the flock and I thought it would be neat to share them with a slideshow.

Created with flickr slideshow.

How does Pat do it? His SF Fugly Packer is one part of the secret to his success.

Here's what Pat says about the SF Fugly Packer...

"You want to pack the tightest deer hair bass bugs?  Amaze your friends, wow your neighbors, impress your kids?  This is my secret weapon..the SF Fugly Packer is like no other hair packer out there.  It is made of forged 1/8 inch steel bar stock with a spring steel bend, then put together with steel rivots, and painted with high gloss metallic lime green enamel and clear coated.  It has finger guards for your protection so you can apply maximum force without worry of slipping into a hook point.  The SF Fugly Packer measures just over six inches long for comfort and stability.  The front of the packer is beveled and a has a hole that accommodates most larger hook sizes.  This is the packer of packers.

The SF Fugly Packer..."Packing them tight since 2011".  Proudly Made In The U.S.A."

Look for a deer hair instructional video early next month from Pat Cohen and for more information check out the Super Fly website as well as the Blog.
