    This is Flashabou, but spooled instead of on the hank. Great color. Easy to store.

    pearl mirage flashback on nymphs - 10/15/2015

    The pearl mirage flashback on nymphs looks great using it over wing cases and then using an epoxy. Really makes an attractive fly for the fish to see. Makes great ribbing too.

    I love the Pearl Mirage Flashback Tinsel. I use it to segment bodies on midge larva and tiny dry flies. Easy to work with. Little or no build up. Great stuff.

    The product itself is great and deserves 5 stars but I ordered 6 spools and only got 5. Not happy about that!

    Great for flashback nymphs, medium width is good for size 8-14 stoneflies (i reckon at least).

    This is a good product , you can use it over wing cases as well, I use it mainly on stocky waters , for the river I prefer something a bit more subtle, as I feel the browns are not as easily fooled

    Great material to use as a rib or flashback for nymphs, but lately I've taken to using it to replace the metal tinsel on my spey flies. The Mirage material takes on the shade of the colors under or nearby the tinsel, and this makes for some very interesting effects. Great stuff ...

    A Must For Flashback Nymphs - 4/19/2010

    I bought a flashback hare's ear at a shop the first time I ever saw it go into circulation. Supposedly, it helps mimic the bubble under the wing case as a nymph or wet fly rises, or it gives a little extra sparkle to add to its visibility as well as movement. Either way, it was the only fly that caught fish the whole weekend, and not for lack of trying other flies. I searched and searched for a good flashback material for years and never really quite found what I was looking for until Orvis released this recently. Just got my first batch (small, medium and large) and I have to say, it's perfect. Just the right sparkle and image I was looking for in my flashback nymph patters (hare's ears etc.). The large flashback worked well with my size 10-12's, and the medium worked great with my size 12-16's, with the smaller stuff available for those really tricky little nymphs. A great value, and I have no doubt my nymph fishing will be more productive.
