Our alternative to Krystal Flash - Mylar Tinsel
Sparklemet is our own version of Krystal Flash - a highly reflective corrugated winging material nut at a fraction of the cost of some manufacturers. It is a deeply fluorescent standard material with pulsating micro monofilaments, giving it unique fish catching properties. Sparklemet is a thin, flexible tinsel that gives lifelike flash and breathing action. Mix in with other fibers to enhance streamers and saltwater baitfish patterns. Flashabou has become an essential saltwater fly tying ingredient, Sparklemet gives even better price / performance than the original Flashabou.
Each package contains approximately 150 strands of 12" Flashabou fibers. It is a super strong fiber that won't matte as it swims and flows through the water, it really attracts fish. Sparklemet comes in a large range of colours including a superb luminous version to add to those deep water lures.
Good product. Great addition to add sparkle to any fly.
TEF Sparklemet was available on the TEF web site at 20p per hank which is considerably cheaper than Krystal Flash supplied by other major fly tying materials manufacturers who charge upto £3 for a similar product. The hank provided by TEF is shorter but this does not dimish the quality of the product and this is superb value for money. You could buy the eqivalent of 15 packets of the TEF Sparklemet for the price of similar Veniard products and you would have far more material. Excellent value for money and of a similar quality to Krystal Flash.
