Latest "Fly Tying" Trend: Feather Hair Extensions Are Hot - Time To Stock Up On Microbarbs!
The latest and hottest fashion trend is sweeping the nation, and it has already affected fly ting material availability! We were wondering what was up with the sudden increase in orders for Metz Microbarb Saddle Hackles, and now we have solved that little mystery. Thanks to one of our fly tying customers, whose Metz order has doubled or tripled, we now know that for every one saddle hackle that goes into his flies, three or four go into his daughter's and her friend's hair extensions! This may be a flash in the pan, or it may become a style trend for years. What we do know is that the hackle farmers like Metz and Whiting were not prepared for this. The longest, narrowest saddle hackles are the most desirable for the feather hair extensions and may be in short supply for the foreseeable future, so stock up any time they are available. We have a few colors colors like Brown and Ginger in stock, and are taking back-orders for the more popular colors like Grizzly, Cree and Cream.
