If you’ve spent any time tying flies, chances are you’ve used a synthetic. Synthetic fly tying materials are made to allow anglers to tie patterns that can’t be tied with natural feathers and hair alone. From Tapered Synthetic Quill to Metallic Barred Predator Wrap and everything in between, our Synthetic fly tying category has everything you’ll ever need at the vise. And, if you want to be more successful on the water, fly fishing starts right here. Trident carries all of your favorite fly tying brands including Hareline, Hedron, Fish-Skull, D’s Flyes, Mcflyfoam, and many more.
Hareline is one of the largest fly tying manufacturers and distributors in the nation and in the world. Hareline carries our largest selection of products across the website, by far, and the Synthetic category is no different. Hareline’s Ice Wing Fiber is great for adding color and dimension to streamers and nymphs. If you want to tie a bonefish or trout fly that can be fished at night, add Hareline’s Atomic Glow Strips for glow-in-the-dark performance. Hareline’s Dragon Tails are another popular synthetic used to add dimension and movement to streamer patterns for Pike, Bass, and other predatory fish. These tails come in a variety of colors and sizes to cater to a multitude of tying scenarios.
Hedron is another company that makes a lot of synthetic fly tying materials. Hedron Strung Fuzzy Fiber is ideal for tying colorful streamers or tails on nymphs and even dry flies. Hedron Lateral Scale can also be used to tie flashy streamers. If you’re tying a stonefly nymph, choose Hedron Perfect Rubber Silicone Legs to give the nymph a bug-like appearance in the water. Perhaps most popular is Hedron’s Flashabou. From Holographic Saltwater Flashabou to Mirage Flashabou and other popular iterations in between, Hedron makes the preferred Flash of tyers from around the world.
Just as Hedron is known for its Flashabou, Kiley’s is known for its synthetic nymph skins and fly decals. Kiley’s has a variety of skins from Slow Rolla Tails to Stone Skinz to Spoon Skinz and even Scud Skinz. Kiley’s Exo Skin is a nice, plastic membrane for a variety of nymph patterns and adds texture and dimension to any nymph. While a majority of Kiley’s skins can be used on freshwater flies, they also make Crab Skinz that are ideal for tying crab patterns when fishing the flats for Bonefish and Permit. Kiley’s adds flash, color, and life-like dimension to any fly.
Finally, if you’re looking for a synthetic hair that comes in a multitude of colors, Spirit River’s UV2 Super Hair is a stellar tying material for streamers and nymphs. UV2 Super Hair comes in orange, yellow, brown, olive, pink, chartreuse, and many more colors to brighten up whatever you’re tying at the vise.
