There are some new, exciting products coming soon from Pat Cohen of www.rusuperfly.com. Specifically, these new products are tails! I was lucky enough to be one of the first fly tiers to test these new tails from Pat. These tails are made from Ultrasuede. Their movement is very similar to that of plastic. I think these new shapes of tails will really allow fly tiers to add even more customization to their streamers. The tails come in white, so you can be creative and color them to your liking. The four different designs that will be offered are the Leech Tail, Minnow Tail, Flutter Tail, and Split Tail. Each design will come in three sizes and are expected to be available in January, 2016 from www.rusuperfly.com. Wholesale pricing will be available for fly shops.
Below are the flies that Daniel Seaman and myself tied up to test Pat’s new tails.
