"Perfect for the wooly buggers I tie here in bass country. Has great action to it and pulses in the water. Slays the bass!"

Exactly what I needed!,

"Being a fly tier for over 60 years I
can speak with some sort of confidence. All fly tying materials that I've purchased from Orvis are
top notch and suit the purpose for which they're intended. In fly tying
a common mistake is using inferior materials to try to save a buck. Orvis supplies the best products for the money!

"Reasonable for the price but not high quality in terms of firmness of barbs for tailing but sufficient for average tyers."
