Lightning Flies

Lightning Bug
Fly fishing in medium deep flows usually isn't a big problem, using nymphing techniques and proper wading equipment.  Problems may occur during the dusk, in the evening, or in the early morning. I tried to tye some lightning (flourescent) flies for these situations, increasing the visibility of the nymphs or the streamers.
I beg to remark that these flies are self lightning and NOT shining, they have their own light, after a flash illumination.
Used materials and some samples will be presented.

For bigger deep seawater (50-150 m) flies (size 9/0) I used Fishing Light Vials,
 the silicone-tube support is fixed to the hook shank

...These vials are durable (6-8 hours)

    Érdekes, bár régi téma.
    Ezeket az anyagokat angolul inkább a "phosphorescent" néven említjük.

    A "lightning" pedig villámot jelent.

    Üdv

  2. A "lightning bug - világító bogár" analógiája alapján bátorkodtam "lightning fly"-nak nevezni.

    A név rendben van. Azért bátorkodtam hozzászólni, hogyha valakinek megtetszene a légy, meg szeretné kötni, és utána keresne az interneten, akkor "phosphorescent" kötőanyagot keressen.
