Try these for Poly Yarn wings

Reviewer: A viewer from State College, PA US

I recently read Lloyd Gonzales' book on fishing pressured waters. In his book he presents a method of burning poly yarn to make mayfly, caddis, or stone fly wings. Once I got the hang of the technique using these burners I absolutely love it. It is a cheap, and visually pleasing method. Try it and I think you will like it to. As far as the wing burners, they worked fine, the edges didn't match up perfectly, but I just sanded them a little to get them matching up better, though I'm not sure it changes there performance at all. I haven't tried using feathers with them yet, but I'm sure they will work fine on those as well as the poly.

Good as an alternative

Reviewer: A viewer from Greenville, SC US

If you into burning your wings this tool will satisfy you. I use it to burn feathers that fall short of qualifying for wings without burning. Someone gave me a very bad quality grizzly hen neck and I burned some usable adams wings from it. Overall its a fun toy. Haven't tried it with synthetics yet, when I do it will be outside!
