I have just discovered this material and as yet not brought any but it looks to me to be a very cheap form of Crystal dubbing.
It is available from EBay sellers at around 4.00 for a ten gram pack which makes it cheaper than the product we buy.

Has any one bought or tried it for flytying.
Here is a YouTube link to the craft application it is meant for but both forms look like they would make good dubbing or bait fish bodies.

Brilliant stuff, if a trifle fine, been using it for 10 years or so, mixes superbly with hare's ear type dubbings & will "stretch" seals fur, as the cost of that is increasing as it become impossible to import - even Veniard's were out of stock & unable to get any recently !

I look forward to both learning from and contributing to this highly respected forum.

After a couple a visits to local craft shops and a lot of blank looks, I ordered a couple of packs from eBay.
I know what you mean re seals fur, I was lucky and bought a job lot of eBay for small change last year so have enough to see out my amateur twiddling days.
Looking forward to mixing in some of the Angelina fibres to enhance the seals and rabbit fur that I use.

Do you use a coffee grinder or mix by hand ?

Cheers
P

By hand, as the fibres are quite long & need to be torn up, if you use in a c/g, they just melt around the blades, I gather. Have yet to try them in old screw top glass jar with water in though.

it has arrived and they are big packs, this lot cost 15 so seems a better deal.
I need to tie some flies now and see how it works.
