    Great fly, Hans. Is Ice Dub similar to Glister? Can you get Glister in the US? Can't seem to find it here.

    Hi Joe,

    No, not same or even similar. Glister is a bit coarser, but mostly different in that it has a ribbon structure.

    It is a Veniard product. I know there are a few outlets in the US which stock Veniard materials - I do not know whether Glister is one of those materials as Veniard have quite a large selection of goodies.

    Cheers,

    Does anybody know where to get it in the US? I've searched and can't find it sold here.

    It looks to me like angel hair or GSS ( Gartside Secret stuff), I bet they would work as a substitue. Also maybe bilobial dubbing.
