    recently on a black friday special i ordered some new bernat velvet chenille. this stuff will make great buggers, bodies on crappie jigs. unfortunatelyit doesnt furl so nicely . you may find it at joannns, michaels stores. 350 yards for about 10 bucks. also picked up some spinella eyelash yarn this stuff is perfect for furling , and making ned rig type jigs but furl two strand together for the tail. it come s in a cake form roll with 5 colors in each cake . all this in time for the indoortying season

    The Early Show November 11, 2018

    my grandson cant wait to do mop fly demos. i will also be doing tying demos on my version of the dragontail style of fly. depending on how it is trimmed it makes a leech or baitfish pattern. it also works good tied on a chatterbait or jig head for you spinning gear fans. see you there rich
