High-Quality Fly-Tying Materials for Realistic Patterns

Orvis offers top-quality fly-tying materials, from bass bug spinning hair and strung marabou to body segments and tungsten beads. The best fly-tying materials are essential for dressers to create lifelike patterns fish can’t resist.

Our collection includes options for tiers of all abilities. Browse our fly-tying materials to find exactly what you need to tie a variety of freshwater dry flies and nymphs. Our selection of brass and tungsten beads allows you to add weight and color easily to standard trout patterns and small streamers. Available in several sizes and colors, our beads help you create exciting new fly patterns that attract more fish. For anglers who prefer their nymph patterns with a little more weight, our tungsten beads are twice as heavy as brass beads and heavier still than lead, allowing your flies to get down into the feeding zone quickly. Start creating more realistic nymph bodies with our colorful variety of Ultra Wire; its flexibility and strength make tying midges and nymphs a whole lot easier. A fine-gauge coated copper wire is perfect for adding bodies to innovative patterns like the Copper John and other prospecting nymphs.

To easily achieve a more realistic buggy effect, explore our collection of natural blended dubbing. Our natural dubbing is much easier to work with compared to other synthetic materials, and it’s essential for adding life to nymphs and buoyancy to dries. Take your fly tying one step further by adding silicone legs to nymph patterns and large dry flies—they’re a superb option for creating nymphs, foam dry fly patterns, poppers, and crab flies. Made from 100% silicone, these tying legs will not degrade when exposed to UV light.

Bring life to your favorite nymphs and streamers with chenille in a variety of colors and styles, perfect for creating steelhead flies as well as streamers. Our premium fly-tying feathers and synthetics are ideal for creating Spey flies, streamers, and saltwater patterns. Our bucktails are meticulously dyed, never greasy, and make an excellent choice for tying all types of streamers and saltwater fly patterns.
