How many pieces of crystal flash do you use with tying crystal meth? I have been using 2 but I also did a few with 3. They look fuller but just wondering what others have found works best....THANKS!

3-4 lines for a all night tying session...

2-3 is fine for the krystal meth flies

I use 2 for mine & gives a nice profile. I can't see why you couldn't use 3.

1, I double it over and tie it in so there is a loop for the tail. This leaves two strands to work with going forward towards the hook eye.

I tie one loop in at the bend of the hook and 2 the rest of the way up. to conserve material, I just use both ends of the same rope to do 2 rows.

I made my own variation last year. A combo of pink egg yarn with the Krystal tubing on top. Egg yarn catches in the steelies teeth and they can't spit it out if you are slow on the strike. They get torn up easily, but work like a charm.
