Contrast 3/0 to 7/0 to the tiny midges used in the Guadalupe awhile back. Great thing about flyfishing is it covers a huge spectrum of possibilities.

Combo pull flashfrom ball first then long white bucktail more flash with 2white saddles then craftfur reversed alternating with hanks of the flash to the head. Flash strip under the glued eye and sharpie highlightes. I use the heck outa this flash stuff pulled from these balls. Sometimes spin dubs with it.

The flash ball looks interesting.
It looks to be made of thin strips of pearl mylar.

Great find & nice baitfish.
