Sparkle Yarn is made of short synthetic hair twisted into acrylic fly tying yarn. Can be used on nymph bodies, wet flies of other streamer patterns as well. Simply tie the material in at the rear of the hook and wind forward. Pick the fibers out with a bodkin for a more "buggy" effect. Approximately 15 feet per package.
