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

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!
