strange yarn my wife got for a craft project, nail polish for lacquer heads, clear coatings otherwise, or painted eyes or dots.
old christmas tinsel for flash.
I think thats all I've used from the house (So far anyway).

wait til you hit a craft store!
Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner and experienced tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.
Fly tyers can be masters at making things complicated!

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson
There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

I also us my dogs hair for dubbing. She is a white dog, so I can dye it almost any color I want.

Darwinism seems to have become a politically protected sacred cow, and I've never seen a sacred cow I haven't wanted to roast - the fact that you are not supposed to criticize it is just too irresistible to me.
