This incredible material is turning the heads of fly tiers like never before.This brush-style material has a cloth core and fibers that have incredible movement. It is applied to the hook like chenille. Once put in the water, the material fibers come alive, unlike anything we have seen. You can trim the fibers material to any length, and to get the most movement fray it out with a piece of Velcro. Great for leeches, buggers, and streamers. The Micro version is ideal for nymphs and damsels.

  • Perfect for leeches, buggers, or anything thing else you can think of

Fly Tying

Buggy-looking for sure, but not a direct replacement for feather hackle. We'll see what the fish think...

Jay Fairs translucent swimming hackle

This material is fantastic. One of my most productive flies is Zack Thurmand’s stillwater swimming hackle leech—check out his video on tying it. My best color combo’s are brown tail with olive under wrap and brown over wrap of the swimming hackle and olive tail with olive under wrap and burnt orange over wrap. Make sure to use marabou plumes for the tail as Zack says. Fished with intermediate sinking line, they are killers.
