Lite-Brite

Lite-Brite has become one of go to materials for all of my steelhead and salmon flies. It is so versatile in the way that it can be used I can’t go wrong with it, in whatever way I need to add some flash and sparkle into my flies. For a brighter body I will use it as a straight dubbing and leave it wound tight, for that buggy/swimmy look on the body I will leave it loose and pick it out. The long fibers in the hanks allow me to make it as long or as short as I want the flash to be. The last way that I use this material is an overlay for a wing to give my flies that extra “pop” in the water.
