Leland on Yak Streamer Hair



Yaks are a bovine species native to central Asia and are commonly associated with Tibet. These animals are very large, standing nearly 2 meters tall and have very long hair that keeps them warm during the winter months. These same long fibers are perfect material for streamer patterns - large ones! These fibers are shiny and sturdy; they will help your largest streamers keep their profile and catch more fish. When tying this material onto the hook shank, alternate layers with flash products to give your flies added depth and dimension. Also, be sure to comb the fibers regularly as you construct the fly. This will help you achieve the profile and thickness you're after. Leland's own Keith Westra loves tying yak hair streamers for his striper fishing trips around the Bay Area. This fly tying material is rapidly becoming a crowd favorite in saltwater fly tying circles, so join the leading edge and tie up some streamers with Spirit River's Yak Streamer Hair!
