Enrico Puglisi, who we may start referring to as the godfather of synthetic fly tying materials, is at it again with these 6 new tying materials for 2015. For years Enrico has been opening the doors to a world of opportunities for saltwater fly tyers with his fibers and brushes, now he’s changed the game once again. In this list you’ll find materials that’ll take your shrimp flies, steelhead flies, and big game flies to the next level. You’ll also find materials that’ll simplify the way you tie flies and save precious tying time.
We first saw these materials at the 2015 iCast show, now we’re one of the first shops to fully stock all the new EP Tying Materials.
EP Gamechange Fibers
EP Gamechange Fibers are another brilliant streamer material from Enrico Puglisi. Each fiber has a longer wavelength and is a touch thicker then the flagship EP Fiber. Tying hi-tie baitfish with this will give a super translucent look to it. Combine with an EP Brush for great color and texture combos. [ Shop Now ]
EP Gamechange Fibers Blend
This blend is made from mixed colors of EP Gamechange Fibers with EP Sparkle added. The Gamechange Fiber has a longer wavelength and is a touch thicker then the flagship EP Fiber. Tying hi-tie baitfish with this will give a super translucent look to it. This material is the perfect blend of colors, bulk and flash. [ Shop Now ]
EP Shrimp Dub Brush 0.75"
EP Shrimp Dub Brush .75″ is a sparse brush of EP Shrimp Dub bound in a stainless steel wire. We like wrapping these to tie quick small shrimp patterns like the EP Spawning Shrimp. Wider open wraps work better as it makes your fly translucent and the action of the brush makes it come alive. [ Shop Now ]
EP Craft Fur Brush 3"
EP Craft Fur Brush 3″ is a mixture of EP Fibers and Craft Fur bound by a stainless steel wire core. The inner and bulky part of the brush are the EP Fibers with the tapered tips of the Craft Fur extending outwards. Awesome brush for wrapping full bodies or long collars. A little goes a long way for collars. Two wraps gives a nice translucent look to your patterns. [ Shop Now]
EP Steel Egg Brush 0.75"
EP Steel Egg Brush .75″ is an easy way to tie Egg patterns and Berry flies. It’s a blend of short EP Fibers and EP Sparkle combined with longer micro rubber legs. Tie it in, wrap it forward, pick it out and tie it off. It’s that simple to get a super buggy look to your next pattern. Using it on micro Crab and Shrimp flies will produce bites as well.

EP Big Game Fibers
EP Big Game Fibers is perfect for big giant flies that will stand up tough, fish after fish. At 12″ it’s Puglisi’s longest fiber. Each fiber has a longer wavelength and is a touch thicker then the flagship EP Fiber. Tying hi-tie baitfish with this will give a super translucent look to it. Combine with an EP Brush for great color and texture combos. [ Shop Now ]
