Read this!!! Replace Puglisi Fibers with this lower cost

Recommended Posts

I posted this message on TexasKayakFisherman.com and thought some of you might be interested, too. A friend of mine, Barry Evans, told me he is using artificial hair from wigs or hair attachments in place of Puglisi fibers, etc. so I bought some.


The fibers feel much like Puglisi fibers; Barry says the do just as well as the store-bought flytying fibers, and they cost a lot less! A fly Barry tied from the hair attacjment fibers is below as are the links to the site where I bought mine.


Barry told me about using artificial hair as a cheaper substitute for some of the flytying fibers. I ordered and the shipment came in. They appear much the same. Below are some pictures of the hair with a packet of Puglisi Fibers and Flashabou. As you see the packages of artificial hair dwarf the flytying fibers.


I did not realize these individual packs were going to be as BIG as they are!


This is the fly Barry tied with similar material:

The packages of hair measure approximately 24 inches long by 7 inches wide. Those pictures were taken on my dining room table. There is approximately $50.00 of artificial hair on the table, not counting the Puglisi and Flashabou.


This si the online store extremebeautysupply.com, and below are the addresses if you are interested:

The Puglisi Fibers and Flashabou hidden in plain view on the mass of artificial hair. If you don't see them, they are right beside the tape.
