Al's favorite Hackle Wallet



If you are like us, you've already found traveling with (or storing) beautiful Whiting saddles can be tough on the feathers. So Gretchen built us several heavy-duty, Cordura hackle wallets sized (6.25" X 16.5") long enough to protect those beautiful feathers. You can slip 3 or 4 packaged saddles (or capes) inside OR Al's has managed to get as many as 8 saddles/capes in his wallet when they are removed from the package before placing them inside.
Price is $12.00 for the wallet. SH is usually about $2.60 when shipped in the continental USA.

Learn to use the Danvise with this great Book by the Beattys.


After using inline rotary vises for a number of years it finally became quite clear that almost all tiers who owned such a vise really didn’t understand what this awesome tool could do. So we decided to do something about it. First there was the DVD, Rotary Tying TechniquesSeveral years later we finished the book, Rotary Fly-Tying Techniques.

We’ve used it for years as part of our commercial tying business and it has served us well. We also are the ONLY source in the US for the Extension Arm that is also resonably priced. It's important to install the Extension Arm correctly. Click here for those instructions.

How To Tie!! EZY Trout Flies: Simple Flies Anyone Can Tie by [Beatty, Al, Beatty, Gretchen]

Many fly tiers consider constructing flies from animal hair to be difficult and very honestly they are not the easiest patterns to produce. However, we offer you an alternative - the EZY Trout Flies in this book. Within these pages, we will show you simple techniques and materials to tie flies that look the same as their more difficult to construct cousins like Humpies, Wulffs or Trudes. The techniques are easy to learn and should benefit any tier should they decide to go for more advanced patterns. That said, as far as the fish are concerned they like the flies within these pages just fine.
If interested, go to then type "Al Beatty e-books" in the search engine box. It's only $4.99 for a download to super easy fly-tying success.


We just re-published our Hair Wing Flies book as a downloadable e-book. If you struggle with Humpies, Wulffs, Trudes, etc. then this book has the information you need!. The most important thing you'll learn from it is how to select the proper hair for the pattern you want to tie and then how to easily apply it to the hook. If your hair wing flies tend to end up looking helter-skelter and not close to what you had hoped, then this book is your solution to a good-looking hair wing fly!
If interested, go to then type "Al Beatty e-books" in the search engine box. It's only $4.99 for a download to hair-wing fly success.

This is a first in a series of fly-tying books that teaches the reader how to tie a single discipline and do it well. In this book, the reader will learn how to tie Wonder Wing flies from soup to nuts so to speak. You will learn how to "manufacture" the perfect set of wings in much less time than it takes to "locate" them by searching through a bunch of feathers or a neck. Have you noticed how elusive the perfect set of wings can be to find? That will never again happen when you can "make" them quickly using large size cape feathers, pheasant body feathers, mallard, blue-eared pheasant, etc. The book leads the reader through a standard Wonder Wing application then teaches how to improve the design to provide a better on-the-water experience. Most of the flies illustrated in the book are divided, standing-up wings, but it also includes the same wings with a parachute hackle application and a range of Trude-style wings. It will improve your fly tying experience AND get you on-the-water faster.
