A NOTE ABOUT JAY FAIR’S SPECIALTY MATERIALS AND FLIES
By Glenn Fair
Three years ago when my dad, Jay Fair, discovered our translucent swimming hackle in its raw form, I couldn’t see how it would work or how to use it. BUT, as soon as he tied a fly with it and took it outside, my eyes opened! When he put the fly in a clear glass of water, I knew that we had a material that would change nymph fishing forever!
When you hold a translucent swimming hackle tied-fly up to the light, you will see into it and even through it! It looks alive! Put it in water and you will be amazed how it comes to life! It glows and swims with the slightest movement or twitch of your rod.
(Further note from Jay)
My son, Glenn, and I now offer this incredible material in four new fly patterns:
1. Kick-Boat and Cast: the name says it all! It is available in six great fish-catching colors.
2. Translucent Bugger: Absolutely replaces all other buggers. Available in six colors for a variety of fish.
3. Translucent Wiggle-Tail: The thorax feathers move like legs and the tail swims. Available in our five best and most-popular colors.
4. Copper Nymph: Unlike our old maribou-wrapped body, this nymph gets down to the fish quickly and holds up against many heavy strikes as it is super-tough.
Thank you for your patronage! Even at ninety, I look forward to saying hello and maybe talking a little fishing so give me a call!
