Handmade Custom Hair Stackers.

A while ago I posted about my struggles with the current range of commercial hair stackers and there inability to handle long bucktail. Since then I have been hard at work refining my own design and finally I am happy with the results.

I had to make 3 different jigs to mount the wood on to get the deired results but it was definately worth the effort.

Darrell over at commissioned this one and I am really happy with the results.

Holy Land Olive Wood was his material of choice but I have lots of different woods from plain ash to the more exotic snake wood!
If you are interested in having your very own custom hair stacker made please get in touch.

I have been experimenting with a type of angel hair I call Kustom sparkle fibre. It has the same properties as angel hair but has a far better colour range.

I have been adding it in the middle of the fly as a sort of flashy lateral line and it seems to work really well.

The only downside is the fibre length, its only 3.5" so you cant really dress an entire Pike fly with it.

A bucket load of New things!!

It's been quite a while since my last post on here so I am going to make this a good one...:o)

I have been researching new products, designing new eyes, tying flies and building a new website so my time hasnt totally been wasted.

First up are the new range of ultra realistic eyes. These have been designed as an attractor pattern with a micro glitter backing that reflects alot of light. I am still a firm believer in offering top quality products at realistic prices so please feel free to contact me if you are interested.

Next up is a fantastic range of Synthetic fibre I call 'Kustom Fibre'. This really is as good if not better than the top brands out there and comes in a huge colour range including some awesome blended shades.

I am offering this in a very generous 16" hank at £1.79 and if you buy 10 colours you will recieve 2 free!!

Finally I have been tying plenty of Pike and Saltwater flies for customers and also for my website which will be opening in a couple of days.....:o)

Tight lines everyone!
