Shortage Of Hackle Feathers
Whiting Farms and other producers of hackle feathers are reporting a scarcity of certain tying feathers. Why you ask? Apparently the new skank fad is to put feathers in your hair as some kind of accessory. I say that is an ugly skank look. Hair dressers have created such a demand that the price for tying feathers is way up and production cannot match demand. Great, I can't wait for that fad to die out so I can once again afford fly tying feathers.
