Some fly fishers don't like much sparkle or flash in their flies, however, I do. The Prom Dress is one of the top selling winter flies out here on the West Coast over the last few years. I've had lots of luck using flashy flies. This is the front view of a sparkle Intruder I tied last week using almost nothing but synthetics. It's got great movement and lots of flash. This and similar flies I'm tying will get used almost exclusively this year. It really does look great in the water!
