The Story

About 30-feet of material per pack.

Made in USA.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Wanted to use it for a variety of streamer variations. Have yet to try it because I have to send it back for Orvis to see the “quality”. Now I have to wait a week to tie anything with this material and I might get the same quality or lack there of. Hopefully I can write another review saying this was just a mistake and slim Odds. It is not 1/8 inch it’s 1/16th.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic material I have been using this zonked red squirrel material for a few years now. It's a fantastic material for tying several different patterns. Be it crayfish, minnow or leech patterns, the material is easy to work with and offers up fantastic action. I can't tell you many big brookies, browns, rainbows, largemouth and smallmouth bass, steelhead and others I've caught using flies tied with this material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slumpbuster strips This is what you need for slump busters smaller than about size 6. Larger than that, and you can get away with less expensive rabbit strips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome stuff One of my all-time favorite materials for tying a smaller zonker-type fly for trout, smallies, and largemouth. Makes a great leech, sculpin or crawfish imitation.
