Natural Hair and Furs for Realistic Fly Tying
Natural hairs and furs have long reigned supreme in the world of fly tying. And, while more and more patterns begin to use synthetic materials, nothing will ever compare to the way natural materials move through the water.
Natural materials like bucktail and rabbit fur also benefit from having a more realistic coloring and feel. Given that the main purpose of the fly is to lure in fish and get them to bite, the more realistic the colour and feel, the better. These realistic colours offer a lifelike appearance that makes them excellent at imitating the prey fish would normally feed on. They’re also known to have better bite retention, as they won’t feel foreign the way a synthetic fly would.
Excellent Results and Value
Flies tied using natural hairs and furs offer excellent value. For beginner fly tyers, natural hairs and furs will get you the best bang for your buck. While flies tied with natural hair and furs don’t last as long, due to the fact that they absorb water, you’ll typically get significantly more material per package. For beginner tyers looking to perfect their craft, natural materials are the ideal solution for both value and results.
