If your flies or bucktail jigs are looking tired and tattered, you can bring them back to their fluffy past with 212 degrees of steam. Just fire up a pot of boiling water and grab an oven mitt and a pair of hemostats (pliers will also work). Hold the fly over the steam and you will be amazed at how the most matted, trashed fly will regain its shape and buoyancy.
