    Entire Birds from Whiting Hackle

    I'm sure most have seen a Whiting bird or two in a fly shop at some time.

    As mentioned in the other post, Borger started tying these in 1982, "sans" the bent hook. He does not mention when he began bending the hook.....

    I tied one of Gary Borger's "Yarn Wing Duns" in a post recently.
