Hi Pete,...

Hi Pete,

Thanks.

G'day Jan...
While I've enjoyed good results with DNA Holo-Fusion, Olive over White...
The tubular sand lance of which you speak is Fish Scale Baitfish Fibre from in South Africa...
I get mine from the Bear's Den and Caddis Fly Shop... Wild Olive over White... it's all very PHISHY!
If you can't get Fish Scale, consider a suitable synthetic substitute [I like DNA]... 'maybe blend in some Pearl Crystal Phlash [or any colour] but keep it sparse and subtle... Cheeerz Pete

this one is a blend of Fish Scale Wild Olive over Chartreuse over White [or something like that]...

Hi Pete,...

Hi Pete,

thanks for the information. I just found a German source for Fish Scale. DNA seems to be more difficult, I'll look today for shops in Scandinavia and/or Great Britain.

Cheers

G'day Jan......

G'day Jan...
If you have a source for Fish Scale, you need look no farther...
In my humble opinion, the entire line is as good as it gets for eels and baitfish... and anything else you come up with...
note: A small dab of Bug-Bond rubbed between your thumb and index finger then worked into the fibre just below the hook bend will eliminate fouling...
'Great colours and just enough subtle phlash... I like it a lot !
'Just add water and Release the Houndz...!!! Cheeerz Pete
