Fly Friday #46 and this week it is from PRO-Team member Thomas Zullich!
Thomas´ signature fly is tied with hair fibres taken from in between the toes of an arctic hare.
The material is hydrophobic - The word hydrophobic literally means "water-fearing," and it describes the segregation and apparent repulsion between water and non-polar substances. We are not sure whether the hares hair is non-polar, but this material does not become wet. We assume that non-polarity is the cause. In simple terms - this fly floats like a cork, or even better.
It fishes amazingly well as a dry in dead drift as well as a twitched wet fly. It even resurfaces all on its own.
The answer to the "one fly only" question? Yes, maybe so ...
