The artful incorporation of flashy material is extremely important when tying artificial flies. Fish are often keenly aware of glittery, flashy objects and this is no secret to fly anglers and fly tyers. This doesn’t mean, however, that tossing a bound wad of shredded tinfoil into your favorite pool or into the skinny water of that picturesque saltwater flat will turn up the results you’re after! Spirit River’s Crystal Splash is easy to manipulate and will add just enough subtle flash and pearly sheen to your flies to have those wily fish lining up for your offering. Tie in some of this excellent material and get ready to hear your reel scream!

This material is designed for times when tyers want to “kick it up a notch.” It is available in many colors and reflective grades. Tying some flashabou or other Mylar reflective material to a fly will increase its attractive quality and draw the interest of more fish, especially in low light situations and darker, deeper, murkier water. It is more common to find flash and reflective material in streamer patterns and nymph recipes, but it can also be a useful highlight to the wings of a dry fly, especially in the extra-fine diameters.
