I've tried Sprite river lite brite and Angelina fibres but recently tried this ice dubbing at a bargain price. 1g of each colour so several dozen flies of each colour

Recently bought these on ebay for about £3. They are great for holding tinsel, flosses and wires to keep them neat around the spool.

Then seen them today for 29p or 10 packets for a quid! Available at bargain buys/ poundstrecher. Might be worth keeping an eye out when next in

I use these to keep the hook up on a Tay rigged rapala, looped through the back wire then round the hook

I normally use Uni Soft Wire or UTC Ultra wire. I prefer the UNI Medium as the Ultra Medium is too thick I think for flies #6-10 I think.
I bought some of this wire #0.3 and it is excellent and just the right size. 26 mtrs for £2.25 is also nice :)
Lots of colours as well.

Been mentioned before. Huge bag of assorted furs from AMflytying for only £25. I've paid £8 for just one of these bits. Off to try and identify them all.

I bought 5 of these, they are excellent and will last me years, thanks for the heads up!
