THIS han­ked tin­sel-like ma­te­rial has an at­trac­tive ‘barred’ ap­pear­ance with black bars over var­i­ous base colours. Al­though the fin­ish of this slightly stretchy ma­te­rial is shiny it’s not too ‘blingy’ and pro­duces just enough flash on the re­trieve to grab the fish’s at­ten­tion. The strands of Voodoo Fi­bres are 12-13 inches long and the most ef­fec­tive way of show­ing off the bar­ring to its best ef­fect is in longer lengths, whether in a tail or as a veil over a wing. This way you also get the max­i­mum en­tic­ing move­ment from the fi­bres as well. Only a few strands are needed to add that all-im­por­tant ‘flash’ at­trac­tion to the fly. It can also be tied in along the side of a fry pat­tern to sug­gest a tell-tale lat­eral line. It is avail­able in seven colours: barred blue (al­most pur­ple), barred char­treuse, barred hot or­ange, barred olive, barred red, barred tan and fi­nally barred white which I think is the most strik­ing in terms of colour con­trast.
