    Excellent product - 10/1/2013

    I bought this together with the blue, red & herring (charcoal coloured). Virtually impossible to source from fly-tying bazaars in UK. Orvis came up with the goods...shame there was no white available though. Yak hair "swims" so much more attractively than the synthetic products and it's translucent look is unparalleled by anything else on offer, the closest natural alternative I found was mountain goat hair, but it just isn't the same. Fabulous for UK pike streamer fly's and saltwater tropical species. Highly recommended!

    Used this to tie some saltwater and pike flies. Excellent colour and consistency of length, thickness etc. Somewhere between bucktail and synthetic hair in terms of stiffness, but much easier to use than bucktail in my opinion. Plenty of hair to make lots of flies. Very quick delivery too.

    Long hair that can be dressed sparsely so fly sinks quickly but has good action

    YAK HAIR AS I HAVE BECOME MORE ATUNED TO TYING STREAMERS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MUST HAVE ITEMS.NOTHING MOVES LIKE YAK HAIR DOES AND YOU DONT GET NATURAL LENGTH OF YAK HAIR OUT OF ANY SYNTHETIC,I STUCK MY LIGHTER BETWEEN THE TWO SO YOU CAN SEE HOW LONG IT REALLY IS. GREAT STUFF MUST HAVE.(WHITE IS A LITTLE HARD TO SEE)
