I was asked by a friend to tie some flies for his trip to north scandinavia. The result: Three Samurais and three freestyle Sunray Shadow.
Some time ago I got some Sculpting UV Flash Fibre from H2O for testing. It comes in a wide range of colors and it is a little bit curly and very soft. That’s the reason, why it moves good in the water, but still remains the nice 3D shape and the volume. Some UV and normal flash fibres are blend into the Sculpting Fibre. It’s just the right amount of reflections of light, not too much and not too less. It works for small baitfish for sea trout and trout as well as for bigger patterns for pike and sea monsters like GT. You could also use it for the shell of the famous shrimp pattern “Pattegrisen”. It’s easy to work with and you can give it a cool coloration with marker pens. You cut it in the right shape with your scissors.
For the streamer above, I’ve used just two colors: UV Wilde Olive and UV White and marker pens. A little bit orange dubbing for the bite point and some 3D eyes together with a good hook and you are ready to go.
A really nice material. I will use it for my tying more often in the future.
You can get the whole range of colors at ADH Fishing.
