Fletchings are small elements found at the back of an arrow shaft that serve to increase the accuracy of the arrow by adding a bit of drag to the arrow's flight. Traditionally made from feathers, fletchings today are produced from a wide array of natural products, plastics, and metals. Besides serving an important utilitarian purpose, fletchings also serve as decorations used to distinguish one batch of arrows from another. Straight fletchings are those which sit on a straight line along the arrow shaft. Off-set or helical fletchings grasp the shaft at an angle or twist along the shaft, introducing torque in the arrow's flight for increased range. Whatever your preferred type of fletching, you can learn how to fletch arrows at home without too much time or trouble.
