The American plains bison is what your fishing is missing, just enough of the coarse fiber to give it some spikiness. Ultralight and naturally water repellant, bison down holds bubbles better than almost any other natural fiber.
This ultimate bison fly tying kit gives you everything you need for your is available in five bison dubbing in colors, enough to get you started and hooked on bison flies for all of your fishing needs. Bison fiber is great for dubbing and bodies. You'll love using the bison fiber for catching your browns, rainbows, salmon, steelheads and whatever else you can toss a line at.

Great material for dubbing, winging and adding collars to flies. Also ordered the Red River Cap. Super warm. I exchanged the rather dull olive green patch on the hat with the round, orange Bison Wool Co. patch--much more eye-catching and can be easily done because of the velcro square on the front of the hat. Just add velcro dots to the back of the patch and stick it on the hat. My only complaint is that the Buffalo Wool Co doesn't ship overseas, so I had the items sent to my brother-in-law in California, and he forwarded them to me here in Tasmania (next landfall to the south: Antarctica, but a great place for plentiful but very wily trout).
Excellent materials. Good quality. As advertised.
Still in the package but looks great. Christmas gift for my brother!
I have always been fascinated by bison and have fly tied for years so it was a natural connection to try. Quality is great and price fair given my usual material purchases. We’ll see if the fish like it!
good stuff I will be ordering more soon
These have good colors that give a natural look; I’m hoping the bison fibers hold-up and don’t ‘dampen down when wet’ like synthetic and other natural (cotton, etc.) fibers...
The colors range of the wool is great. Soft, natural looking colors. Just the right thing for fooling fish. The material works well and I was pleased with the results on the flies I tied. Looking forward to tying up some more patterns while using this material.
