synthetic fly tying fibers.
Tie flies of all types
and sizes from nymphs to Clousers to T-Bones with Fish-Skull Faux Bucktail, a
tapered synthetic multi-use fly tying fiber designed to imitate typical
premium-length natural bucktail.
Fish-Skull Faux Bucktail
fibers have the same basic diameter, gentle crinkle, and taper as natural
bucktail. In appearance, it looks almost identical and has the same distinctive
bucktail fly or lure action in the water. However, the fibers are not hollow (which
helps your fly sink faster) and will not “flare” in the same way as regular
bucktail while tying. This means you will need to tie with slightly different
techniques to achieve the same effect.
Every Faux Bucktail fiber
is premium 6” (152 mm) length, giving you more than twice the amount of usable
fibers per tail and eliminating the headache of sorting and searching for ideal
strands. Simply peel off the full length of your desired amount of fibers, trim
to length, and tie them in.
The fibers can be used in
a wide range of fly or lure types.
Trout flies: Beautiful tapered
wrapped “quill” bodies, nymph wing cases, Mayfly tails and legs.
Streamers: From tying typical
Clouser Minnows or Deceivers right up to large, “bite-proof” Pike, Musky or
Golden Dorado flies.
Poppers: Tie simple and
durable tails on foam poppers
Bucktail Jigs: Tougher,
longer lasting fresh and saltwater bucktail jigs.
Musky Bucktail Lures or dressed trebles.
Note: Faux Bucktail cuts
easily, but like most other synthetic materials can be hard on your nice
scissors. Use serrated heavy-duty scissors designed for synthetics (or an old
pair you don’t mind abusing).
