Kreinik Flash In A Tube™ is a synthetic metallic material for adding sparkle and light reflection to the tails and wings of many flies. Kreinik Flash is unaffected by saltwater or epoxy finishes, yet is flexible enough to be mixed with marabou, enhancing its action in the water.
It is the one and only flash to use on the Kreelex Fly. Add strands to the tails of woolly buggers, bass bugs, poppers, eels, and leech patterns. Mix with bucktail in streamers. Single strands can be used as ribbing on nymphs and wet flies. Perfect in popular dry fly patterns. The white glow-in-the-dark can be used as a substitute for calftail in a Royal Trude, or as the wing post in a Parachute Adams. It’s like having a built-in strike indicator.
Each package includes a clear plastic tube for ease in cutting and storing.
Colors ending in a "L" such as 001L are holographic flat fibers and give a smoother finish and more metallic look.
Colors ending in an "F" are glow-in-the-dark colors.
Colors ending in a "T" are "transparent" flat fibers and give a greater pearlescent look.
Colors ending in a "Z" are Holosheen fibers that are extreme metallic colors
There are 250, 12" strands in each skein, folded over in the middle and bound with a tie.
Unsupported means it is a single metallic strand, and does not have any extra nylon supporting threads (which are often used to add body)
Size is 1/69"
Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, super friendly and great variety of product.
They've got anything you could need. It's a huge selection, which is surprising for a small town shop. They're amazing people and Collin can answer any questions you have. His knowledge is impressive.
I recently spent a weekend with a close group of friends fly fishing along with Colin and team - incredible preparation & professionalism, quality camp equipment and fishing gear and just a first class operation overall. I would and highly recommend RMFS to any and all fishing skill levels interested in enjoying themselves on the water. It was a really positive experience for our group.
Congrats to Colin and Tammy on the move to their new location in downtown Olds! The prices are fair, they have a great selection and the shipping is lighting fast. Best sticker offerings I have seen south of Red Deer as a kicker.
I had a fabulous lesson with Jordan from Rocky Mountain Fly Shop. We went out on the water and he tailored the lesson to my experience and skill level. We touched on casting, fly selection and an introduction to reading water. It was all hands on and I walked away with the confidence to try new things this summer. It was a perfect morning and I'll definitely do it again.
