This ORIGINAL Fritz.. is approx.15mm in Diameter, composed of Pearlescent Lurex strands interwoven and trapped between a pliable dual-core.
This allows the fibres and strands to pulsate as they move through water which provides that all-important mobility and 'action' which attracts fish making this amazing material so deadly on flies.
Originally used mainly on Trout Lures, the combination of the material itself.. and the sheer ingenuity of Fly Dressers has resulted in 'Fritz' being used for literally THOUSANDS of game flies,
targetting HUNDREDS of Fish species..
In addition to modern flies, many fly fishermen have experimented and re-invented their traditional Lures, Nymphs and Mini-Lures.. by using and incorporating FRITZ in their dressings..!
