Without question the largest area of growth in the world of fly tying has been in synthetics. My early days of weighing and bagging bulk feathers are long gone. While we still sell marabou, bucktails, pheasant, and rooster feathers, the selection and expansive use of synthetic fly tying materials has exploded. Images below represent some of the synthetics available today. These photos are meant to inspire, many are proven fish catchers and many are not. The art of fly tying requires no fish and often the most important thing they catch is the angler.
We would love to see your most creative fly for 2021. If you would like to share please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy New Year
