How to use Icelandic sheep hair!

Icelandic sheep hair gives great movement to any fly but has one downfall, Its not pike mouth friendly especially when combined with synthetics. The hairs are too fine and tend to end up being matted far too easily. Never comb this material out when wet as well and allow to dry before doing so.Even then, you'll find clumps falling off the fly and it very quickly becomes half the flies original length. Great tutorial though.
