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

If you want some realistic tails and spinner wings, this is a great way to go.

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.

I use this on sparkle duns, shucks for emergers,and many other things.
Works like a magnet for fish -
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.
