Flashabou is a limp, easy to tie with, flashy material that is a mainstay in salmon flies. Add a few strands to tails and wings to give your fly just the right amount of flash, or use a lot to tie patterns like Flash Flies or Red Hots.
Flashabou is one of the primary materials used to add flash to streamer bodies, tails and wings. It is light and easy to tie with. The fairly limpness of the material allows it to move and flow making it great when used with materials such as rabbit and marabou. A must have for anyone who is tying Pacific Salmon and Steelhead patterns. Try mizing with krystal flash to really bring a pattern to life.
Wide variety of colors.
