Apparently, Steven Tyler sported feather extensions in his hair and that caused the feather craze to spread across the country. Check out this article about it: http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2011-06-19-hair-feather-trend_n.htm

I think hackle feathers are pretty but I don't want them in my hair. Hopefully this is just a brief fashion craze.

i'd be willing to bet this fad started long before tyler put them in his hair

women have been adorning themselves with feathers since the 1800's and probably even before that

Real life confirmation of what we have been hearing.

I had a customer in my office today w two Grizzly saddle hackles in her hair.
We chatted about feathers, the fad, fashion, fly tying, ect. When I got to the point in the coversation where I was comfortable in asking I asked: "Do you mind me asking how much you paid for your feathers?"

She said she didn't mind and that she had paid $15 each for them.

This is why Whiting is telling their commercial fly tying accounts that they can expect NO feathers unitl June of 2013.

If you got 'em you might want to see if you can sell 'em.

My nieces from PA stopped in for a quick visit on Sunday. Turns out they each had feathers in their hair. $15 a strand. Being the generous guy I am, I gave them each $45 worth of feathers (according to salon pricing). I also showed them a 100 pack with a $14 pricetag. They were a bit surprised to realize they were wearing chicken feathers in their hair.

Actually, I did. :oops: They will have no idea what kind of chicken feathers they are wearing, but as long as they are happy . . . They also got some white and some grizzly. I offered some furnace and some ginger grizz, but they didn't seem inspired.

They live a few minutes away from a primo fly-fishing only trout stream. But have never tried fly fishing. Planning a September trip for pheasants (on my brother's dime ;) ) with him and his boys (and brittany spaniel). Might need to further ruin his boys with fly fishing while I am at it. Oh yeah, I will also go to my HS reunion.
