    Default Fringe Lurex Yarn

    Another interesting yarn is the Fringe Lurex Yarn from Ice. This material also have a sparkle due to the Lurex weaved into the thread. The last photo shows it palmered around a hook. You can buy this and many other kinds of yarn at Paradise Yarn.

    yes thats the stuff i was going to post a while back. the fibres are shorter than the sample you sent with the fly stations, and i have caught trout and bass on this pattern. all i'm saying is that the material is usable and you get a whole lot on a roll, the colours are also stunning, and oh yes mommy can knit a scarf out of the leftovers i'll find my pics and post them

    The Americans call this Boa Yarn and there is a well known pattern called a Boa Yarn Leech. I think it would be a good stillwater trout fly.
