Each package of Hareline Extra Select Craft Fur contains approximately 25 square inches of material. The design is such that the fibres run from about 2 to 3.5 inches. This helps create wings and tails that appear with a tapered effect when fished so the flies you present have a more life-like characteristic.
Great for steelhead flies, leech patterns, baitfish and beach flies. Craft fur provides bulk with a small tie down point.
Fair Flies Brushes
Every brush is built with the highest grade stainless steel wire at its core leaving it salt and rust proof. Tying with our brush simply builds a better fly. Thread loosens when wet and materials will move.
As with all of the brushes you are in control. More turns give fuller, bulkier profiles and fewer allow you to downsize for low, clear situations. Start on any platform you wish: tubes, hooks, jigs, shanks, with weight, or without. Add a wing, or don't; again it's up to you. But no matter how you fish, these materials will get you a lot of hookups.
We are not taking the fun out, we are just taking some of the time out!

A little bit about this fabulous company:
Fair Flies is a registered Benefit Corporation in the state of Oregon. Why is this important? As a Benefit Corporation we place mission first in our operating agreements. It is the job of our board of directors to make sure that we are first about mission and second about financial returns. Sustainability is important to us be we want to do it in the right way. We believe in Trade instead of Aid and we use fly tying materials as our primary product to provide livable wages to marginalized people in compromised areas around the world but focused in SE Asia.
Fair Flies is all about pairing your passion for fly fishing with our desire to make positive impacts with communities around the world. Our suppliers are committed to bettering the lives of the people they employ, be that with young people who need direction and purpose to stay out of crime, widows who need help providing for their children, victims of exploitation who need to be rehabilitated, or simply parents whose children are at risk of being sold into slavery. Obtaining regular orders from Fair Flies helps these suppliers retain employees and provide ongoing mentorship as they engage in the art of fly tying.
It is equal parts proactive and reactive. By paying living wages up front, we are able to help in many ways. Families can stabilize because fathers can remain in country and mothers can move the family financially forward. This removes the temptation to send their children elsewhere for the hope of a better life, which often turns into some form of exploitation. We are also able to help victims of exploitation. They find a better way to live in a loving environment that provides a wonderful network of counseling and emotional support. Many come with stress disorders and need these supports to start a new life. This is our mission. These are the ones we care about and who your purchase supports.

Magic Carpet Craft Fur.
Magic Carpet is similar to Craft Fur - it's just a better version of it.
The main advantage - it has much longer hair - around 12 cm.Ultimate fly tying material for pike flies, often used for sea-trout flies, also for any other big patterns.Very long and fine hair, which does not absorb water and moves incredibly when wet.
Packed patches around 14 x 20 cm, providing plenty of fly tying material.
