A Neat Material
By Al Roberts, Port Orchard WA

This is a quickie - Al Roberts is a merchant seaman, and spends months at a time at sea - not able to run down to the fly shop and pick up materials.

He does take a fly rod with him, and some tying materials as well - but doesn't have room for all the goodies he uses when home.

At the recent Central Oregon Fish-In he brought some 'new' materials he is using. I'm sure you've seen them too, but maybe not for the same use. The material is Krenick Diamond Braid, and Al's winner is the Peacock color which he does use on fly bodies in place of Peacock herl.

It certainly works, looks great, and since the braid comes on spools it is easy for Al to store as well. ~ DLB
