Fly Tying


  • Fly-Tying Materials
    High-quality fly-tying materials are essential for tying any fly pattern: we offer a large and well-rounded selection of only the best. Our collection of fly-tying materials has something to offer tiers of all abilities. Browse our fly-tying materials and find exactly what you need to tie a variety of freshwater dry flies and nymphs. Our selection of brass and tungsten beads allows you to easily add weight and color to standard trout patterns and small streamers. Available in several sizes and colors, our beads help you create exciting new fly patterns that produce more fish. For anglers who prefer their nymph patterns with a little more weight, our tungsten beads are twice as heavy as brass beads and heavier still than lead, allowing your flies to quickly get down into the feeding zone. Start creating more realistic nymph bodies with our colorful variety of ultra-wire. The flexibility and strength of ultra-wire makes tying midges and nymphs a whole lot easier. A fine-gauged coated copper wire, this material is perfect for adding bodies to innovative patterns like the Copper John and other prospecting nymphs. To easily achieve a more realistic buggy effect, explore our collection of natural blended dubbing. Our natural dubbing is much easier to work with compared to other synthetic materials, and a must-have material for adding life to nymphs and buoyancy to dries. Take your fly tying one step further by adding silicone legs to nymph patterns and large dry flies. Silicone legs are a superb tying material for adding legs to nymphs, foam dry fly patterns, poppers, and crab flies. Made from 100% silicone, these tying legs will not degrade when exposed to UV light. Bring life to your favorite nymphs and streamers with our New Age Chenille. Similar to variegated tinsel chenille, this tying material offers more hot color options and is a fantastic tying material for creating steelhead flies as well as streamers. Our premium fly-tying feathers and synthetics are ideal for creating spey flies, streamers, and saltwater patterns. Our bucktails are meticulously dyed, never greasy, and make an excellent choice for tying all types of streamers and saltwater fly patterns. Add realistic strike-inducing motion to your baitfish flies with our assortment of EP Fibers. A must-have material for saltwater flies, these fibers provide flash, sparkle, and semi-translucence. EP Fibers are incredibly lightweight and add maximum fish-attracting motion to all saltwater flies. In synthetics we also offer Z-Lon, CCT Body Fur to tie Game Changers, Super Hair, Steve Farrar’s Flash Blend, Angel Fibers, Ice Dub, DNA Frosty Fish Fiber, Flashabou, and Krystal Flash. Our premium grade marabou feathers are an essential material for adding lifelike movement to your baitfish imitations. Best used for tying saltwater flies and streamers, our marabou comes in several colors and will absolutely give your flies the action you need to produce more fish. Get your baitfish patterns in the strike zone faster with our selection of coneheads and fish skulls. The fish skull is a weighted head with a realistic baitfish profile and specifically designed for tying innovative freshwater and saltwater streamer patterns.
