Super Floating MaterialSUPER FLOAT SYNTHETIC FIBERS -- We're introducing a new product we call "SUPER FLOAT" and it's causing as much excitement as No Hackles's and Parachute Madam X's. Nothing floats like these ultra fine fibers and they allow the design of lots of new patterns. Now you can fish streamers, nymphs, pupas, soft hackles, strymphs, emergers, dry flies -- any fly you can design -- right on the surface. This is especially true of "Veil" Flies, that are so popular in Australia and New Zealand. To prepare the fibers for tying, we use a wire brush to break up 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, 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 like a cork, we do recommend you put floatant on your leader not the fly. And what's really exciting is when the fish takes, you see the whole thing!! We keep the fly moving like a natural insect, skittering it around blind fishing if there are no risers. If you have risers close enough to cast to, get it over the rise as fast as you can and move it a little we have found most of the time the fish takes it. We have 5 colors and more coming soon. Colors: White, Tan, Dun, Orange, Dark Olive and yellow.

11 inch Streamer HairUnique Hair, This is the material that we use for our Pike fly Enticer and our Saltwater fly Ocean Hair Demon.

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, Bright Orange, Chartreuse, Yellow, Hot Pink and Polar Bear.

Price: $1.95 per packet

      
 
Gator Hair Mini Packs - These packs are the same length as regular Gator Hair but half the amount as the regular pack. Gator hair is great as tail material, making brushes, cut up and make a dubbing brush, make sculptured flies, your imagination is your limit. These packs are great for travel but also less expensive to try several different colors.
Available in 10 colors: Black, Brown, Olive, Tan, Gray, Purple, Red, Chartreuse, Yellow, and Polar Bear

Price $.95 per pack
