Pott flies, especially the sandy mite, are going through a popularity rebirth around the Rocky Mountain west. In response to your requests for materials to tie the venerable sandy mite, we now offer packaged light brown (tan) horse mane, traditionally used to weave their bodies. We also have orange floss in two and four ply types, the other material needed to weave these classic Montana patterns. We recommend hooks such as, Daiichi 1560, Dai-Riki 075, Mustad 3906, and TMC 3761 for sandy mites. Don’t forget the 6/0 black thread!
