In its most basic sense, Hedron’s Saltwater Flashabou was designed to add flash and bright color to large streamer and baitfish patterns. However, Saltwater Flashabou has more than just one use. It’s a great material for crafting flashback wingcases on nymphs, and it can also be palmered to create flashy bodies on nymphs and even streamers like a Surf Candy or Muddler Minnow. Also, when used as a body material, Saltwater Flashabou creates a nice glow when coated in UV Resin. A useful material for a variety of different purposes, Hedron’s Saltwater Flashabou should have a place on all of our desks whether you fish freshwater, saltwater, or a combo of the two.
Because Saltwater Flashabou is so wide, there aren’t many options of flash that are that large. And while Hedron’s Flashabou is a great substitute if you’re looking to add flash, it lacks the width that Saltwater Flashabou offers. Another Hedron material that’s somewhat similar is their Holographic Magnum Flashabou. This is a large flash material that’s 16” long, but it’s only 1/32” wide, and it also has 3D holographic properties. Although many flash options exist, whenever you’re looking for a wide type of flash, Saltwater Flashabou is the perfect choice.
