I have a couple recipes that call for a product called Flash n Slinky, my local shops don't have it but I'm sure there a close alternatives. For those that have used it what are some close replacements?
Thanks

Someone stole my coffee cup. Now I have to go to the police station and look at mug shots.

I haven't tied with that product, never heard of it so I looked it up. It appears to be similar to Puglisi Fibers with a little bit of flash added such Orvis Angle Hair.

It looks very similar to one of the fly tyers dungeon products.

Great for saltwater ties as it's somewhat a mix of thin fibers & thin flash that layers well in a multitude of colors.
