In The Feather Mechanic, Gordon presents his deepest thoughts about how he sees tying. The idea is to get people moving past the ‘sbs’ (Step by Step) mentality and getting them to tie flies logically as opposed to just following steps. Everything you put in a fly needs to be motivated. Form follows function. You need to understand what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. If you can do that you’ll be tying flies that catch more fish because they make more sense! “The Feather Mechanic” is an idea and presents the reader with an alternative approach to tying.
