Today I was tying up some of my Korn's Spent-wing Caddis flies with Opal Tinsel bodies. The tinsel was a real pain in the butt to handle as it was full of static. It was so bad I almost couldn't put it down! Then I remembered an old trick. I ran downstairs and grabbed a dryer sheet from the laundry area and put that on my tying bench and laid my tinsel on it, bingo! The anti-static dryer sheet solved the problem and I could get back to knocking out 15 dozen of these killer flies...
