A few years after I introduced the original EP® FIBERS I felt there was a need for a much more supple and thinner diameter fiber, especially for small trout patterns. After much trial and error I finally found the right combination, and EP® SILKY FIBERS was born. Then, more time and effort was spent on blending colors to perfectly match baitfish pattern, which is the EP® SILKY FIBERS 3-D. No synthetic fiber has this much life in the water, period. The action is like a marabou feather, but the difference is the durability. It’s the ideal fiber to tie small patterns, especially small minnow, to attract the most worried wild trout.
