Fly tying furs and hairs can be used when tying a range of different trout and salmon fly patterns and can be used in a number of ways, from creating a buggy looking body to tying in a large mobile wing on a salmon fly. We stock a wide range of furs and hairs, all available in a range of colours.
Natural furs and hairs are often first choice for a range of fly patterns, especially salmon flies! Depending on the hair being used they offer a host of benefits. Materials such as rabbit fur or arctic fox add plenty of movement to flies thanks to the natural taper of the fur, some natural furs also have unique markings and colourations that can't be dyed into synthetic materials. Some natural hairs, such as deer hair, are also hollow adding buoyancy to your fly, particularly useful for tying dry flies.
