This is the last inches of the faboulus poly-yarn by Staffan Lindstrøm. It has been a key element in my fly tying since the 80´s. It is no longer available. This was the first modern material I had in my box and is partly responsible for making me a modern fly tyer.

I will use these last inches very carefully…
