    What are the sharp quills made from?

      Elk hair, cut from the hide and ‘stacked’ in a device (hair stacker) that allows the tips to be uniform length. The clump of hair is tied in/on to the hook and the non-tip sections (the butt) where the hair was cut from the hide are trimmed to equal lengths.

        Ah; a lot of intricate work.

          Yes, in some patterns very much so and in others, the more ‘impressionistic’ variety, one can pay less attention to the details re ‘matching the hatch’ (trying to tie the fly to look like a real mayfly, caddis etc.) and attach materials that suggest life and let the fish decide if it worthy of a gulp.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
