ABU Optic – A streamer of tremendous killing power…

Abu Opti Streamer

Back in the days when fly tying was still a bit mystical here in Scandinavia Abu launched this streamer. Bead chain-eyes was a revolution. I remember tying a lot of these for a customer in the 80`s. He prefered it in hot orange and gold. I caught quite a few fish on it myself. Today fly tyers can create super-realistic creations and we have a wast amount of materials to choose from. Back then there were not a single bead chain left in any office around town. I targeted the post office for the most part myself. Simplicity works…besides they have cool names!
