Lite-Brite

Spirit River

 

There are lots of uses for Lite-Brite. It is a thin flashy material that is great for mixing together with your favorite dubbing to add sparkle and highlights. Lite-Brite is also great as a dubbing all by itself when you want a really flashy, bright dubbed body. We use sparse amounts of Lite-Brite over marabou on steelhead marabou flies to add subtle flash.  Also, add a touch of Lite-Brite to hairwing steelhead patterns like the Halo and Last Light to add a bit of sparkle to a squirrel tail wing. It also makes nice "flashy" minnow patterns in smaller sizes.
