Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great material for tying poppers! I purchased this material, when I went to buy some fly lines. I wanted to try using it for tying poppers. It is excellent material for tying my poppers with it's iridescence and sparking properties. The guy's in my fly tying group even liked it. Looks like our fly tying club will have to do a field trip to Orvis soon. Thanks Orvis!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Effective material The Orvis Flex Hackle in the 1.25 inch size is an excellent material for tying rich bodies on #2 and #4 hooks to create a creature fly that dances in the water. I use it for a pattern I've adapted from the basic set up of the Clouser Deep Minnow, adding flex hackle, strung hackle feather tails and some flash. It's a deadly bass pattern and has been enjoyed by smallmouth, rock, spotted and white bass, channel cats and sauger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I got the 1 1/4" hackle in several colors. With a marabou tail and dumbbell eyes I use flex hackle for the entire streamer body. Looks great in the water and pushes tons of water. The big trout take notice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect material for a specific tie While attending the Northern Ohio Fly Fishing Expo in Brecksville one of the professional tiers demonstrated a particular tie. He made a list of all the components used in the tie and told me to check with Orvis. Recently, your store offered a discount and free shipping so I purchased online the material. It arrived as promised and is exactly what I need to finish doing this particular lure.
