Enrico Puglisi’s Sparkle Brush is a brush made from EP Sparkle Fibers. With a 10 inch length, 1-inch or 3-inch width, and a stainless steel wire core, this material is extremely durable. One advantage of this material is that it doesn’t absorb any water, so it winds up being very easy to cast. Another advantage of Sparkle Brush is that the colors have UV qualities which will make your flies stick out more underwater and lead to you catching more fish. With these qualities, you get the renowned motion of EP fibers with an extra element of sparkle visible in natural baitfish. Like almost anything Enrico Puglisi touches, this brush will turn any fly you apply it to into gold. Bass patterns, saltwater patterns, and even trout patterns all can benefit from the addition of Enrico Puglisi Sparkle Brush.
Uses: Salmon and steelhead patterns, crab patterns, bass patterns, saltwater patterns.
Comparisons: Similar to Polar Chenille, but with a wider profile and stainless steel wire core. Another difference is how breathable and lifelike the fibers are because of the EP blend construction. As is the case with most EP synthetics, there’s really nothing that moves like them.
Example flies: EP Crab, EP Salmon Streamer, EP Seaducer
