    Good - 4/16/2014

    Not the best Zlon I've used, but good. I bought the variety assortment and it came with white, tan, bluish grey, brown and green. Enough to tie a couple hundred flies! I'd prefer to have amber or orange in assortment, though.

    I have been using Zlon for many years for tailing and wings. Ties in nicely and seems to work when you put the end product to test over fish

    Great z-Lon...excellent quality AND quantity. Material is very well packaged and is easily removed from packaging when needed without the usual mess that comes with a variety pack. Will buy more from Orvis when I run out. Thanks.

    I have used z-lon for a good number of years and this is good quality. The only thing I would like to see is more choice of colours e.g. amber (need for shucks on flies such as iris caddis and x-caddis).

    Z - Lon makes a great dubbing material for dry flies. It floats great and the sparkle it shows makes for a great attractor pattern. The light olive really works well on emerger caddis flies.

    Works like a magnet for fish - 8/6/2009

    Used in moderation this material truly attracts the attention of fish. I've had trout explode out of runs to get at my flies because of this material.
