Clip-N Hackle Anyone?

By Tim Romano

File this one in the, "when will it ever end" category. Friend and author Steve Schweitzer sent this to me the other day after returning home from a flight. Apparently SkyMall, the in flight magazine with thousands of products that never should have been put in to production now has jumped on the hackle in the hair phenomena with "clip-in" hackle. According to Sky Mall they're, "Easy to install, easy to remove, 100% natural and organically dyed, and reusable". Each package contains one clip with three one-of-a-kind high quality feathers that measure from 5 inches to 10 inches in length.

Wow, "all natural" and "organically dyed". What does that even mean? Three whole feathers... So inexpensive too. 

Thought you all had to see where this has gone and give you some giggles for the day. Pardon the digression.

ADDohman,I have to say, I can relate. Whenever my wife asks me why I need another gun, or knife, or tree stand, or bow, my favorite response: "just cause".

Is she a turkey or a pink wiggler?
What ever happened to "genuine plastic?"

Both my wife and daughter have feathers in their hair. If I ever need a quick piece of hackle I know where to look.

Good for the economy! Good for jobs! And this thing is way, way overblown. There are hackles everywhere for sale. It is free advertisement for the industry...hope you get it.

I'm sure this is one of koldkuts girl friends that he met at the Sportsman's Show awhile back. Good to see he has her wearing hackle. :)

That moment when it hits you, that all of your steelhead bucktails and flashers can be purchased for a third of the price at hot topic.

My wife works in a salon and she was telling me about this, so I showed her my saddles and she said, "You have hundreds of dollars sitting there." I told her I don't care if they're worth thousands, I'm using them to tie flies.
