It's no secret that synthetic materials
have changed our fly designs over the years. Effects only dreamed
about in the old days are now common in the rich variety of tying
materials available. Angel Hair is one such achieving material.
Two properties make it inherently productive: 1.) its ability
to flow naturally and 2.) its translucency. Learn in this step
by step just how easy it is to tie a winning fly.
Angel Hair captures the brilliance
and iridescence of the underwater world. Mixtures of material
and light set off by motion make these flies truly ignite. This
design tackles the problem of when fish are on to larger forage
and a longer, wider profiled fly is needed.
that takes advantage of a weighted doubled-up hook, stealthily
hidden in a flat wing configuration. This fly is great for getting
deep in fast moving water.
Ultra-Bright Rattle Squid
The Ultra-Bright Rattle Squid emphasized most of the dominant characteristics of a real squid to create the illusion of movement. The materials used are designed to gather light in low ambient light conditions and in stained water. Most of the fly materials comprises the use of Angel Hair and Poly Bear, two highly reflective materials. These sparse materials do not absorb water, so the pattern is easy to cast.
