Hi all, need a bit of help identifing the material used in tying this fly. My young fulla found it on the banks of the Tongariro, kids are great for topping up the fly box. My guess is some type of "Angel Hair" maybe.

  

The only things i really need is water, a gun and rabbits.

Can't help you Dad,  but it looks great.  Thanks for posting that.
(looks like a cross between SQuirel and glister)

NB: the trees on the Ngongotaha are also good places to send the kids up to look for flies..
  

Like a cane chair at a nudist camp, always leave an impression.

NOMADS it's a crackin lookin fly, the pics don't do it justice, put some eyes on it and it would be a killer. Iv'e showed it to a multitude now and all I get is "na no idea mate". The material colours look a bit like the Rainbow Dub.
