I regard this as one of the most exciting materials I have come across in the 6 years I have been running uksaltwaterflies.com . I have been experimenting with various products this spring. During this process I grabbed a small hank of Light Olive Nayat hair , strapped it to the shank of a hook and had a great fly ready to fish an instant success ! I was excited about the potential to tie really nice tapered flies in an instant Nayat hair has a natural taper that I love for Baitfish patterns. It has a decent length at around 7 inches long. The patches are quite generous and would be comparable with my craft fur or Icelandic sheep patches.
The best thing or should I say yet another great feature about Nayat hair is what I would class as the bath tub tests . Some materials look great dry but then flare out of shape as soon as they hit the water. Nayat holds its shape and profile perfectly .
Nayat has the best features of Synthetics with the natural taper of animal hair I could describe it at EP fibres but better - Icelandic sheep but better.
The potential for sandeel patterns is really exciting . Check out the Nayat eels and Sparse Olive Clouser tied with Nayat.
What more can I say !!
Please note that White is classed as Natural. Its an 'off white'' Halfway between white and cream.
