It is amazing what you can find around your house and use for tying flies. If you are resourceful and imaginative there is an endless stream of stuff... from beads to fabrics to plastic bags, tinsels and wires and who knows what else... that can be used for tying flies. Would'nt it be fun to have a contest for flies made entirely of as you say 'garbage'? You'd win hands down mcjames!

hareline d-rib is "softer" and can be stretched thinner than s-daze.
i also have used the clear rubber bracelet material from my daughters' kits. it makes a great abdomen when wrapped over desired colored thread. no need to flex-coat afterwards.
i like 'em simple. just a few steps and a few materials so i can crank out a dozen or so an hour while on a trip...
All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.

My kid's stuffed animals provide an endless supply of all colors of dubbing. Pow-wows are a great resource for materials as well as second-hand stores.
