Not sure what type flies you are trying to tie (wide bodied baitfish or slender critters) but if it is wide bodied then it is hard to beat any of the South African material (Kinky Fibre, Flash-N-Slinky or SF Flash Blend). Just depends how much "bling" you are looking for. I also like for the smaller stuff the Unique Hair. These are the best materials I have found for translucency. If you want your materials to breathe then try Polar Fibre or Extra Select Craft Fur. Hope that helps some.
