Jay Fair's Translucent Swimming Hackle

Jay & Glenn Fair
$3.00

This incredible material is turning the heads of fly tiers like never before.This brush-style material has a cloth core and fibers that have incredible movement. It is applied to the hook like chenille. Once put in the water, the material fibers come alive, unlike anything we have seen. You can trim the fibers material to any length, and to get the most movement fray it out with a piece of Velcro. Great for leeches, buggers, and streamers. The Micro version is ideal for nymphs and damsels.

  • Perfect for leeches, buggers, or anything thing else you can think of
  • 1 1/2 yards per package

Jay Fair’s swimming hackle

I love this material. It’s so easy to use to tie leech patterns like Zack’s swimming leech pattern. Hopefully The Fly Shop will stock all three sizes of it—right now the medium length isn’t listed.

Hoping you guys keep the Fair products inventoried. Once they are gone so will some of your customers go.

Amazing movement

I was just up fishing our famous still water here in Colorado, Spinney Mountain Res., with my newly tied swimming leaches with the J. Fair translucent hackle. The stuff was so vibrant and alive in the water I wasn't surprised when the big rainbows started pounding it. The 24-incher I caught fed all 8 of my buddies that night for dinner!
