Fletching is the aerodynamic stabilization of arrows or darts with materials such as feathers. The word is related to the French word flèche, meaning "arrow," via Old French; the root is Frankish fliukka. A fletcher is a person who makes arrows.

The fletching consists of three matched half-feathers attached near the back of the arrow or dart's shaft that are equally spaced around its circumference.Fletching is used to stabilize the arrow aerodynamically. Some fletches impart a spin on the projectile, but all are there to impart stability to the projectile to ensure that it does not tumble during flight. Generally anything that stabilises an arrow can be called a fletch.

Most fletching is based on older dart making methods.Also rocket fins could also be called fletchs as they stabilise the rocket.
