STEALTH FLY CRYSTAL FLASH - PEARLESCENT


12" LONG CRYSTAL FLASH FOR STEALTH TAILS

PEARLESCENT

More details


£1.75


When tying up Stealth flies you really need some flash in the tail and the irregular, random nature of Spectrum Fibre does not really work like it does in the body so an alternative is called for. Ta-Da! Hail Stealth Fly Crystal Flash Fibre!

Basically it is a fine version of standard Crystal Flash but supplied in 12 - 13" long hanks, so it makes an excellent addition to the tails of Stealth flies.

I use 3 strands only per fly, which once doubled-over and tied down gives 6 strands that are visible in the tail. This way you don't overdo it and end up with a fly that has too much bling.

I tie the tail in and then tie the flash over it and double it back before doubling back the tail fibres and tying down firmly. Doing it like this results in a very much better, more subtle and seductive result with the flash only visible through the main tail fibres, which breaks up the lines of the individual strands of flash material.

Available in four colours; Pearlescent, Pink, Blue and Green, so you can choose how you want your flies to look. I prefer to choose a colour that compliments and blends with the material used for the tail, that way the strands become less visible and the twists of Pearlescent stand out in a more individual way leading to a more pleasing appearance.
