EP Fibers are amazingly translucent and have an action between marabou and bucktail. They are the perfect fly tying fiber for imitating any baitfish pattern for fresh or saltwater as well as very small baitfish imitations. Large flies tied with EP Fibers are a dream to cast because they don't absorb water. On your first back cast, any water will be shaken off your fly! Use your imagination and there is no limit to what you can do with EP Fibers. One of the most popular fly tying fiber materials on the market! Available in a ton of fish-attracting colors!

This was the first EP product I've purchased and it did not disappoint. I love everything about EP Fibers, from the color, to the ease of tying, to the action in the water. Hands down one of the best fly tying products I've ever purchased.
Absolutely great material, there isn't anything better out there for making baitfish flies!
I greatly prefer EP fibers to craft fur or pseudo hair. It's very easy to work with and gives a superior result. You can even use it in place of other materials (eg bucktail etc.) for Clouser minnows etc. Also very durable and makes a long lasting fly.
I use these EP Fibers for tying my saltwater streamers. Solid colors seem to work the best where I live and EP Fibers hold up to the big fish that I go after. Lightweight and so easy to cast!
These fibers make some of the best looking saltwater flies I've ever tied. It takes a little bit to get used to tying with them, but it's definitely worth it.
The fly can get fouled easily while casting, but it's not that big of a deal. However, it will get very messy when you catch a fish. You will need to take some time to clean up the fly (have a comb handy). So, don't use it when you are expecting to catch a lot of fish in a short period of time (trout at the lights, spanish mackeral, chasing schools of small redfish, bluefish, etc.)
When you are looking for that one fish that just wont take another fly, pull out something tied with EP fibers.
