A note from Allen Campbell:

“Deer hair flies are some of my favorite to fish. The sound they make, the wake they pull, and how they ride in the water. There is a small learning curve to fishing them well, but when you have that down, it’s game over! Deer hair flies are classic and they continue to produce even with all the fancy foam and materials out there now. Below are some tips that I’ve learned and have been passed down to me.”

Deer Hair Tips and Tricks:

1. Don’t skimp on good deer hair and thread. Always coarse hair and strong GSP thread.
2. PRACTICE! It won’t happen overnight; keep at it.
3. Use a sharp razor, it will make all your cuts a lot cleaner, easier, and safer.
4. Do your homework and watch the masters – Pat Cohen, Andreas Andersson, Ed Lash, Jeff Creamer.
