This is another great product in the Flasabou line. I add this to streamers that are intended to be fished deep or in dark conditions, and also to large nighttime dry flies - just a few strands in the wing and you're good to go! The material is a bit stiffer than I would like it to be for streamer patterns, but that quality makes it that much better when added to dry fly wings.
I use a little of this flashabou on all of my spinner patterns. last summer i used it on brown drake patterns that literally meant the difference between catchin no fish (my fishing buddy) and landing well over 20. with just a little of this tied on, it gives your eye someting to track on the water. just give it a quick blast from your headlamp and its good to glow for a half hour or so.
glows just enough to add a really great look to bucktails and any other pattern in which you'd include flash. This is the perfect material I was looking for to complete my glow in the dark floating bream bugs.
Ive added this stuff to tails of streamers with great results. Like others have stated it is great used in spent wings. One thing I did do with great luck for Great Lakes salmon (in the streams) is tie wolly buggers using nothing but glow in the dark flashabou (except for a bead head and the hackle). It worked great in the early morning. Caught a few salmon (coho) on it and had lots more strikes (some kings and coho). All in all a great material to use when you need that little something extra.
