Default New Find

As Tiers, I am betting we ALL have tried or are still using UTC Holographic Tinsel. I love the stuff and have it in every color available.
Holographic Tinsel, New Fly Tying, Home : Cabelas.com

I have seen this anywhere from $1.49 to $2.49 for these spools that hold around 20 YDs of Tinsel.
Well while I was in Idaho this last weekend, I hit JoAnns and scored big time.

SULKY Holoshimmer:

Sulky Holoshimmer, holographic tinsel by another name | Singlebarbed

These are intense colors and 250 YDS for $3.95!!!!! Thin however, but still awesome on #12 scuds, but PERFECT for smaller flies, and ribs.

Check out these scissors on this add as well....JOANN'S ROCKS!!!!!

Wow, you hit the Mother Lode! I've been using Holographic Tinsel ever since you pointed it out a couple years ago, I love the stuff. I think Cheyenne has a JoAnns, might have to make a trip over there.

Oh how I like finds like this. Can't wait to get to Joanns tomorrow. Good one Joni. "Throwing elbows to hold the crowd back" made me laugh.

To make this even better, we hit the JoAnns in Idaho Falls and they are in the process of moving so...50% off!!!!! Limited stock though.

The Burgundy *the fly I tied* was the first one I grabbed...I love that color and I think the fish do as well.

Just got back from buying Holo Shimmer at JoAnns, and thought that I would post this "URGENT WARNING". You can't make yourself just buy one color. Double Dare you to try.
There are some neat colors.
