Krystal Flash is the Hareline version of crystal flash synthetics. Flash is a widely used fly tying material and is often used in tails, wings and bellies on many flies. It may be used as a highlight among other materials such as a few strands alongside a marabou Wooly Bugger tail, or used to make the entire wing on a streamer. The fine crinkly wave of the flash reflects light in all directions and impart life to your fly pattern. Krystal Flash can also be used as a body material. Just tie in a small bunch of 10-20 strands and wrap it forward.

Tying Tip: To prevent a mess on your fly tying table, keep the flash in its original package. Cut out a small opening in the package just under the zip lock closure and use a bodkin or scissors to tease out a few strands of Krystal Flash as you need them. This ensures that the strands stay organized and prevents a huge mess.

Available in over 40 colours including pearl, metallic, UV and grizzly versions.
