Craziest Tying Materials
I've dubbed the underfur from my golden / shepherd mix into summer steelhead nymphs and spiders. I've also read about classic salmon flies that call for human hair (specific colors from females only). As I mentioned, I use the ultra-thin foam packaging sheets for emerger wings (nothing new of course) and have tied my daughter's craft tinsel into silverside patterns. If you ponder ez-shape sparkle body, it's probably nothing more than glittery goop for fabric decorating. The shed feather's from my nephew's zebra finches have adorned my spey flies in the past, and I've tied tube flies on aerosol spray nozzle extenders.
Any wacky materials stories out there?
