Also some with shanks.
I love fly tying and I like to try out new materials which I luckily have been able to do this winter thank's to my homies at Fly-dressing.
New materials enable me to also try out new patterns which is nice,you can create some fancy things with small lightweight pikeflies too.
Sometimes it's just relaxing to tie some basic patterns with a new twist using all these new materials like this Polar reflector flash,awesome to add in between the ties on a basic hollow deciver.
Also I like to use other flash than Magnum flash on my smaller ties,and I have fell in love with a material I actually have had for a while but used it very rarely.Hedron Polarflash got some super nice colors on market like the pearl blue and this dark olive pearl.
With these small twists i think my flies got that little extra "something" in them.
Tied up some basic decievers using these materials,still quick and simple to tie,easy to cast and catch well...I like that.
Still waiting for open water.....got my sights middle of April.
