Angel Hair is a very fine and very flashy wing material. It is ideal for baitfish imitations, Clouser Minnows, or chopped up and mixed with your favorite dubbing. It is slightly uneven in length and runs 6″-8″.
The colors mix very nicely. For a deadly minnow pattern, try a dark back color like Baitfish and a lighter belly color such Pearl Green. When tying in a wing we often will tie the Angel Hair in forward, fold the material back, and wrap it again. This effectively ties the wing in twice and helps keep it from pulling out.
