Overall this is a great product. One complaint is that the fiber is hard to seperate. One trick I have learned is to carry a small comb in your fly tying bag (like the cheap ones you get from your barber. IF you comb out the fiber first and remove the kinks, it makes a world of difference in handling when seperating and tying!
Great product and a must have for saltwater fly tiers. Very easy to handle and tie when making bait fish, crab or shrimp patterns. Tip 1 is to not use too much material at once. When you believe you have the right amount then use half that amount. Tip 2 is to have a comb and a sharp pair of scissors because you will need to trim this material in order to get your desired shape.
After trying bucktail and numerous other materials for baitfish patterns, I have come to the opinion that EP fiber is one of, if not THE best material for getting the most movement out of a baitfish style streamer!
These fibers come in awesome colors and are great for building up baitfish patterns. I've also found them to be great fibers for toad flies and crab patterns. The opportunities with these materials are endless. My only issue with the product is that sometimes separating the fibers from the hank can cause for some wasted material as the fibers tend to stick together. But all in all this is a fantastic product.
For those who have used traditional EP fiber, you know its versatility. The 3-D fibers add another notch of perfection with their natural color blends. The color combinations add life-like realism to your baitfish, crabs and any of the other great EP patterns. These are a "must have" item in your fly tying arsenal.
