Nature's Spirit travels to both Montana and Idaho selecting hides of the finest quality for fly tying purposes. This cow elk hair is a premium product and is perhaps the best all around fly tying hair. This flank hair is graded for straightness, short to medium tips and texture that allows for compression yet maintains shape.
Using similar techniques as with Nano Silk we extruded thin Polyester strands which were then slightly twisted and had a light amount of wax added to them. The amount of wax added has been specifically applied after consultations with top Professional Fly Tyers.
With the lightly twisted strands this allows the thread to both lay flat and split easier than other threads on the market. Having reviewed the market offerings we also added 8/0 to the range and included fluorescent colors along with the traditional colors desired.
A Hair Stacker is used to align the tips of hair cut from a hide. The Standard hair stacker has an aluminum base and 1 brass barrel. The Brass barrel is 5/8"OD by 2" long. The brass barrel is smooth to allow the hair to slide easily. The aluminum base comes with a rubber pad to protect your table.
