Predator Fibres - Fly Tying Body & Winging Material Our Alternative To EP Fibres from Enrico Puglisi

Having an action between MARABOU and BUCKTAIL our Predator Fibres are an alternative to Enrico Puglisi's EP Fibres but much more cost effective as you would expect from The Essential Fly. Predator Fibres are available in 16 colours in 18 inch strands they are perfect for imitating large baitfish as well as 1” to 2” baitfish whether tied on hooks or tubes for saltwater or freshwater fishing flies. Another great use of Predator Fibres is as winging material for Temple Dogs or other salmon flies, because it does not absorb water the flies will cast well and give great movement in the water every time.

Large flies tied with Predator Fibres are a dream to cast significant distances as the first back cast removes all the water from the fibers. The Predator Fibres are fully hydrophobic and easily sheds water on the backcast making the material light to cast.

The fibre has a slight 'kink' to it allowing you to give the fly some bulk without having to use excess material. THEY DO NOT ABSORB WATER. Use your imagination and there is no limit to the flies you can create with Predator Fibres. Synthetic, translucent long tapered tail fibres - Predator Fibres are equally as delicate as traditional feather fibre but infinitely stronger.
