Synthetic Living FiberSynthetic Living Fibers - (SLF)  Back in the late 70's and early 80's, right after Carl Richards and and I wrote about the "Stillborn Phenomena" in "Selective Trout" we developed a pattern we called the "Mantilla", which covered freshly-born minnows and small fish. When my partner passed on, I let the concept slide until a few years ago, but now the Mantilla is a very deadly pattern. To get the realistic membrane affect, we tried numerous fibers and found SLF, a very special trilobal material, to be the best. We hand-mix 5 colors to get the proper effect. We also use SLF for our Small Fry Saltwater Fly. It is a great material for many patterns.

Colors: Black, Light Olive, Cream, White, Gray, Root Beer, Tan, Yellow, Orange, and Red. New florescent colors - Fl. Yellow, Fl. Orange, Fl. Chartreuse, Fl. Red, which are also UV.

Super float fiber in tan Super Float Fibers --We are able to get the Super Float Fibers again in 3 colors. White, Tan and Dun. This material not only makes great posts and wings but you can tie emergers, dry flies, surface streamers -- any fly you can design -- right on the surface. We keep the fly moving like a little skittering, to help attract the fish. Remember to prepare the fibers for tying, we use a wire brush to brush out the ribbons of material. One way we use it is to cut off 1/2" to 1" fibers and then put them in a coffee bean grinder for a few seconds, not long at all. It is so easy to tie with. One easy way, is pinch a few fibers down where you want them, tie on shank then fold back, tie down, repeat, the whole length of the shank and tie off. Blend in with a Velcro comb and you are done. Great looking flies on the water and they float well. You can cut some of the fibers up rather short and make your own dubbing, tie some longer fibers on top for a wing. And what's really exciting is when the fish takes, you see the whole thing!! Colors: White, Tan, and Dun.

11 inch Streamer Hair Unique Hair, This is the material that we use for our Pike fly, The Enticer and our Saltwater fly Ocean Hair Demon as well as several of our other salt water and freshwater streamers.

It is 11 inches long, great for those larger flies for pike and saltwater but also makes dynamite smaller flies for trout.

Ribbing for flies or cut for legsAQUAGLO RIBBING - Wow! What a great Glow-In-The-Dark material! Especially for Legs, but also for bodies, tails and ribbing. Super durable and can be stretched almost double its length, which reduces the diameter from .030 down to less than .020, making it great for both large streamers and small nymphs. So easy to work with. Remember, GID flies are just as effective in daylight as they are at night. Try some Aquaglo legs on your Girdle Buggers and Georgie Boys and I think you'll be surprised.

Photo/Fly made Congo Hair & Gator Hair, Fly Tying Materials   Fly made of Gator Hair - Fly Fishing Materials

GATOR HAIR - I searched all over the country trying to find the best possible hair to use in a Dubbing Machine and finally found it right here in the Everglades.

Most materials were either too stiff, too flexible, too fragile or too hard to use, but 'Gator Hair has the perfect blend of properties.  It comes in great colors, swims beautiful in the water, has natural sheen and best of all, makes gorgeous brushes for Trout, Bass, Saltwater, Steelhead and Salmon Flies as well as works great for just making streamer tails for Freshwater, Saltwater, Pike, Musky's and Steelhead.

Another very important characteristic of 'Gator Hair is that it displays a perfect balance of toughness and slickness. It can stand up to the abrasion of wire brushing process and is just slippery enough so that any trapped fibers can easily be combed out. 'Gator Hairs'  10 inch length allows you to create everything from a tiny trout nymph to a giant tarpon fly. We use Gator Hair in our Rub-A-Dub Streamers.

Available in 12 great colors: Black, Brown, Olive, Tan, Gray, Purple, Red, yellow, Hot Orange, Hot Chartreuse, Hot Yellow, Hot Pink, Polar Bear and White.

Hot Orange, Hot Chartreuse, Hot Yellow and Hot Pink are also UV.

Price: $1.75 per pack      Many out of stock
