Leland on Turkey Biots
Biots can be found on the leading edge of a bird's flight wings. These veins are stripped from the feather and tied on to a hook shank to create an excellent body shape for dry flies. There are two distinct types of segmented bodies that can be created depending on the wrapping technique a fly tyer chooses. Turkey biots are an extremely durable material that tapers slowly toward the butt end of the section. This fly tying material is very easy to work with, and turkey biots can produce some of the more elegant body profiles in the long catalog of fly recipes. To get extra life out of your turkey biots, store them in water for up to two months. This will prevent them from becoming brittle and unusable.
