The Illustrated Materials Gallery…

How many different species of birds did we not discover on our journey along the classic flies we so passionately admire. One can feel nothing but true admiration for the miracles of nature, that have provided our ancestors with such a variety of stunningly beautiful feathers to choose from. And while many of these species are threatened with extinction today, we may still fearlessly and legally admire their descriptions, depictions, and photographs through the ages.

Uniting the old with the new, the Illustrated Materials Gallery takes you on a journey through the world of ornithology, while showing you which materials are relevant for classic fly tying, along with an updated list of substitute suggestions.
