After trying loads of different materials for making pike flies and Saltwater flies i found this stuff.

I was so impressed i decided to import it in to the country and offer it for sale.

Funky Fibre comes in loads of solid colours but more importantly comes in multi colour colours as well which are superb.

Funky fibre is made of two thickness of translucent fibres that have a slight crinkle to them and are hydrophobic so do not absorb water and shed water on the first back cast.

The multi colours are made with up to 4 colours mixed together to give some superb unique results.

The unique way this material is made gives the fly volume and bulk without the need for using much material in fact when you first start tying with it you can tend to use to much thinking you need to get bulk but take around a third away of what you think you will need and you will have it about right.
Perfect for making any type of Baitfish patterns from tiny lures for trout right up to 10" lures for pike.

Funky fibre is also great for Saltwater flies like Peanut butters, Peanut bunker, Hi tie Minnows, Merkins, Toads etc.

Why pay £5 pounds a hank when you can buy for £3.50 a hank.

Hi,

Does the fibre take colour from permanent pens well? Certainly looks interesting stuff.

How about Predator Fusion Fibre (PFF) for a name? Do i get a prize ;)

Cheers

This stuff looks similar to EP fibres. Is it a similar material?

Cheers,

TS

I will take some pictures of it next to EP fibre and let you make your own mind up;)

But its 50% of the cost of EP fibre.

I will stick the pictures up today.

Here are three colours of EP fibre next to the Funky fibre.

I will do some better pictures when i have a bit more time.

Green EP on the left and Green mix Funkyfibre on the right.
Slightly different mix of green.

Black EP on the left and Black Funkyfibre on the right.

I will leave it to you to decide how close they are.

Better still order some and have a play yourself;)

Here is a poor tying of a pike fly i like to use made from Red/White mix for the back and Polar for the belly with a new Flash material i have found used for the gills and internal gut.

I pinched some of this off Toby a while back before he brought it out and have used it to great effect as tailing on Blobs, great stuff, especially at this price.

Thanks

Received my FF last week and looks very good. Have tied a few flies, and look forward to giving them a swim.

Thanks for the fast turnaround & free gift.

All FunkyFibre that has been ordered and paid for has been sent out.

I am waiting for some colours to come back in to stock and these should be ready with extra colours in the next 2 weeks.
