Hi everyone, I tie Flash Stragglers, in various colours with red being the top pattern. I'm tying some brown variants, but need some brown Tri-lobal Crystal mix (Venirads won't make this colour) which is the synthetic hackle used on the pattern. (I'll post a photo soon) Does anyone know, where I can source some of this brilliant stuff. Those who fish Ellerdine in Shropshire, or Seighford in Staffs would probably know the pattern.

Please help

Not sure if this either of this stuff is any good.
They both might be a little to claret in colour.

Hi westcountryboy, Thanks for the reply mate. I use this for the body material and need some Tri-lobal for the hackle, it's pearly and coloured, if that makes sense? Veniards won't produce it, but, someone must know of an alternative. Thanks again.

Regards
