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.
It has been several years since my first purchase, and the materials and the colors of the materials are still "5-star" in quantity and quality. There's a lot of fly-tying, fish-catching fun in this bag of bison goodies! Try 'em once, and you'll be back for more.
A cinder worm and shrimp imitations tied entirely with buffalo wool are now among my favorite flies for striped bass fishing in Rhode Island estuaries.
I gave my fly fisherman the kit last night. I think he liked it. once he starts to use it I'm confident he will. I sure had alot of fun getting it and giving it!!
