Your Guide to UV Enhanced Fly-Tying Materials
I have found flies containing UV consistently outperform the same flies without UV.
UV reflective materials are more visible to fish during low light conditions.
The following list of UV materials are products that I use in my flies. All images are pictures taken under UV light.
UV Enhancer Flash
I use UV Crystal Enhancer as a body wrap along the hooks shank. It creates a glossy finish which mirrors the appearance of midge and midge pupa. It is also a great material to blend with any dubbing material. It can be easily blended with Spirit River Hare’s Ear.
Senyo’s UV Predator Wrap
This soft material adds movement and visibility when integrated into the marabou tails or wings. Senyo’s Predator Wrap is simple to use and creates fantastic collars and bodies for all types of flies. It is durable and is east to trim to desired size and length. The material is soft and flexible adding movement.
