  • High price-point doesn’t always equal the best tool for the job.

  • Paul Beel highlights new Ultrasuede tails available from Pat Cohen. “Their movement is very similar to that of plastic,” he writes. “think these new shapes of tails will really allow fly tiers to add even more customization to their streamers.” Via Franken Fly.
