: Another source for hair?

02-07-2002, 10:19 AM
I did a web search for synthetic fiber manufacturers and distributors and found this (Note: When I clicked the site it tried to download some Korean language translator but I clicked "cancel" and could still view the page)

Go past the human hair (ugh, seems creepy for some reason) and check out the 98 color sample ring. Hmm . . . I wonder if they send free samples?

Quentin, I'll admit I thought the foam blocks were a little ambitious but this could be a HUGE find!

Since we are a potential reseller, maybe we could order the ring of samples. That could be a year's supply of deep eels in every color :devil:

Yeah Juro, I saw "sand eel" all over that stuff! Amazing blend of colors too.

Could you figure out which type would be the best for tying? The product descriptions didn't help me too much because I haven't tied many flies using synthetic materials.

I sent a brief email to the "wig21" email address asking how to obtain a small sample of each type of material and one of those color rings. (I didn't say why I wanted the stuff. Just that I was looking for a source and wanted to see their samples.) Hope they say "How many do you want?"!

Yeah, the foam blocks were kind of a stretch. But they were only a buck and I figured I could do *something* with them. The foam sheets may actually be useful though if I can find them. The Fibre Craft site says that "Michaels" stores carry their products but I don't recall seeing any foam sheets.
