Family Dollar Store Find

Any other flash fanatics like me need to check the Xmas stuff already coming out. Got these for $1.19 each at HobbyLobby. Not sure about the curly stuff except on big stuff....didn't have all the colors yet(?) already had the red and a wider gold and silver this is half as wide.

Since at the Family store wouldn't be confused with a sex toy.....

Sense of humor wise....

This is going to make a bunch of good panfish flies.

For just a $1

 

Love that and will be looking for one! Is it flexible, too?

Those places always have interesting n useful stuff for fly tying. Try the fake eyelashes for dry fly tails.

More off da wall....

Been looking for floating beads, whatever. Found some glittered styrofoam balls small enough in Xmas decorations at DollarTree. Problem is they are soft not hard foam. Managed to connect and mount to the hook with Solarez and glue. The Krazyglue melts them.... Durability is guestionable but put enough resin they get hard as rock. Anyway dressed a couple and soaked'em in the rain barrel. Hoping they'll pull under and bob up over some grass beds???? They floated more than I expected, used lighter hooks...
