Deer Hair Frog Popper

Cheech - October, 2018

So this is the tutorial you want to watch if you're at all interested in learning how to master some killer deer hair skills. Jeff Creamer returns for what we consider a spectacular example of deer hair mastery. Not only is the hair work a work of art, Jeff takes care in all his patterns that the bugs will catch fish and not fall apart after a couple of nom-noms from a gnarly bass. We recommend watching the techniques and getting the right tools (i.e. packer, thread, good hair, good razors etc) and you'll find, with practice, you'll be on your way to good deer hair flies.
