Swiss Straw & Thin Skin Shell Backs

Swiss Straw Synthetic Raffia

Our synthetic Raffia is soft and makes great coloured shellbacks. To use simply tie in over the body of your Nymph and use Semperfli 0.2mm Wire or a Monofilament to form ribbing on your fly.
Alternativly use the Swis Straw as wing cases and wrap around the hook to create bodies without adding any weight to the pattern.
Another alternative use is for very realistic looking wing buds on buzzer patterns.
Swiss Straw can be coloured with a permanent marker and then add a coat of Semperfli No Tac UV Resin or a varnish for stunning effects.
Available in single colours with 10 meters per card or on a Multicard with 10 colours and 1 meter of each colour.
