I'm looking for some Vampire Vippy which I believe is available in Europe. I will be in Belfast, Berlin and Athens in May. Can anyone recommend a shop in any of those cities that carries it?

Thanks

Sorry Paul, should have been more specific. It may also be known as Fritz, Polar Chenille or Straggle.

Of those three I think Belfast will be your best shot!

I was hesitant to Google that term, wondering what would come up :-). Fritz, straggle etc. can be found at almost any online dealer, and most of them ship around the world, so why not just order online?

I tie with a group and we were tying Vampire Leeches which is named because it uses Vampire Vippy. None of us had it and we all substituted with Fritz and Frazzle. As I said I'm heading to Europe and thought the guys would get a chuckle if I brought back the real deal.

on your sexyloops board, under fly tying , a guy is asking for vampire vippy, i think he means vampire hippy, it was a product of a company called celtic flycraft based in wales but unfortunetly they are no longer in business, the nearest is a product dave downie does called frazzle fritz. just thought you might want to pass it on.
