American Flag Wedded Feather Wings
(Version #1)
When we first learned how to marry feathers, started with the American flag colors.

AMERICAN FLAG WEDDED WING #001
Instructions to build the above set of American Flag wedded wings. This pattern was excellent practice to learn the importance of counting barbs. There are seven red stripes and six white stripes, each made with two barbs. If even one stripe has an extra barb, it would be obvious.

Copied this pattern from a photo we
found in the internet. Made a mistake
when constructing theses wings and used
fluorescent yellow on one wing and plain
yellow on the other.

MATCHING FEATHERS
In most cases the use of matched feathers will improve the appearance and structure of a fly and this is especially true when tying feather wings.

BUYING AND SELECTING FEATHERS
What to look for when buying feathers. As a beginner we bought a lot of worthless and damaged feathers. This page will help in the selection of good quality feathers.
 

REMOVING BARBS FROM FEATHER WINGS
There have been times when constructing a set of wings that there are some extra barbs. It is easy to add an extra barb when marrying them together in a set of wedded feather wing and not notice until the wings are finished. It is very easy to strip out extra barbs...

ADDING BARBS TO A FEATHER WING
Adding barbs to a feather wing can be a little more difficult than removing barbs, but should be an easy enough process.

MANIPULATING THE FLOW OF THE WING
You might want a wing that sits low and sweeps back or high and arched. The easiest way to explain this procedure is with a video.
