I have used SF synthetics to tie numerous baitfish patterns, deceivers, and clouser minnows for fly fishing for African Tigerfish. The materials tie easily, can be trimmed to shape without loosing the ability to retain their form in the water, and are durable beyond belief.
After catching a tiger, the flies come out of the water incredibly beat up, but just as incredibly, they can be brushed back to shape and fished again.
I highly recommend the SF synthetics, which I prefer to the EP brand, and JS Stokard has the widest variety of colors that I have found.
This is my favorite material for saltwater baitfish imitations. Tough the EP products may be more popular, I like that the SF blend can be tied full bodied, yet still remain translucent.
These are my favorite synthetics to use. They have great movement in the water and hold their shape. Best synthetic replacement for buck tail and there are tons of colors. The bleeding colors seem to just have strands of red in them but the shades of the color are different. I bought both the regular grey and bleeding grey and the bleeding grey is much darker and the regular is almost silver.
This is one of my absolute favorite synthetic materials. You can create some amazing bait fish patterns for any predatory fish. One quick and easy way to use it is to cut it short and throw it in a dubbing loop (or magic tool) and turn it into a long fibered chenille. Leave it as is or trim it into a fish profile.
