GlissenGloss Fly-Tying Supplies

October Caddis Pupae Tying Instructions

Many of our products are used and recommended by internationally known fly fishermen. They call for them in their books and magazines because of their flash, color, and resilience and because they excel in attracting fish.

Here is what some of the fishermen have to say:

    "Estaz has been and still is the best product of its type on the market. It is kind of funny but I use it so much for every conceivable type of fly that I think I have forgotten how to use other materials" - Fran Verdoliva, Jr.

    "Estaz is the most effective body material I have found for pike, steelhead and salt water patterns." - Steve Probasco

    "EstazMetallique is easily the most versatile and practical fly tying material I have seen come down the pike in recent years. I've incorporated it in many of my existing patterns." - T. Borski

    "Braid Ribbon is the best tinsel I have ever used for covering lead on my Atlantic salmon patterns." - Jim Bashline, former editor of Field & Stream

Like its predecessor Estaz, Estaz Grande is gaining recognition as the best large chenille on the market. Grande is 50% denser, with fiber lengths double that of regular Estaz. These properties lend itself well to the tying of steelhead, bass, salmon, pike, and saltwater flies. The length even allows use in place of hen hackle in certain patterns for an electrifying effect.

The light reflective body fiber of our Petite Estaz, a smaller version of our regular Estaz, is available in 38 dazzling colors. Petite Estaz lends itself well to the tying of smaller trout, steelhead, bass, and salmon flies.

The highly reflective body of our Estaz, Metallique fiber mimics colors and hues that surround it. Available in eight brilliant colors including gold and silver, this quality makes it the perfect material for flies that require bright, vibrant color.

Braid Ribbon is a metallic tinsel available in 2mm and 4mm sizes and makes an excellent choice as body material for streamers and hair wings. Unraveled Braid Ribbon is an excellent streamer material. Twisted and wound, Braid Ribbon produces a multi-segmented looking body and makes it easy to obtain a bulky body if desired.

Prizm, a super strong holographic fiber available in six sparkling colors on spools or packaged. Packages come with a special seventh mixed-color package. Prizm's holographic properties and stiffness make it a true fish-catching wing, tail, and ribbing material.
