I am curious to what fly tying materials you have discovered as non-intended fly material...?
Here are some of mine:
- Subway bags for wing material - cut a strip and stretch it out slowly to get the correct shape.
- Dryer Lint - Black pug fur added (washed and blended with some other materials.
- Broomstick plastic - black makes great legs.
- Plastic packing beads in the glow in the dark indicators at Walmart make great salmon eggs. Color them with permanent marker and add a little cotton.
