Fly Tying Tip #132

I had a great idea passed on to me today. A comment was posted to my YouTube channel about using silver tinsel under floss bodies to make them glow.  Just a great sounding idea.  I will usually tie floss bodies and tags with a light color thread of white,  chartreuse or yellow so that when wet the under color is lighter than the floss.  You can see that on the Governor to the left that I work the bodies, tie off, and then go to the black as that is the finish color for the head.  I am definitely going to give the tinsel a try.   Maybe even holographic.
