Here are three fundamental flies with different sili skin heads. One is Polar fiber, then Unique hair ,then Bucktail... but different size heads covered with epoxy and then hard as Hull. Much lighter than all epoxy..( except for the Unique hair because it's so small anyway). All Hy-tyed. I think I still would use all epoxy on the smaller flies anyway... maybe ok for bigger flies.

I have not used sili skin. Does it float? That is a lot of mass on top of the hook if it doesn't.

How can I get some?

Thanks.

Jim..the stuff is in fly shops now... some call it Loco Foam. it does float but I am trying to experiment with epoxy substitution.
