Fly-Tying Tools & Materials
Tie your favorite patterns with Orvis fly-tying materials, tools, and supplies. Hungry trout can’t resist realistic flies tied with our tried-and-true hackle fibers, dubbing, hair, chenille, flash, and feathers. Our fly-tying kits include all the supplies you need to tie a specific selection of recipes, and include an instructional DVD—an ideal option for the novice. Seasoned fly dressers will find the body materials they need for tying lifelike flies. Fast-sinking tungsten beads get your fly down quickly—and keep it where it belongs. Flexible fly-tying wire, durable thread, fly-tying cement, and stretch tubing add durability to dries or nymphs, and create precisely segmented bodies that fool the pickiest of fish. Reliably sharp hooks for any application make each recipe stronger and more effective. From brookies to tarpon, tempt your quarry with rugged, precisely tied flies—and net more fish with a hook that refuses to bend.
Our fly-tying equipment and tools include the vises, desks, organizers, lights, and magnifiers that work hard so you can fish harder. Our space-saving equipment and storage solutions pack up and tuck away to keep your work center organized and free of clutter.
