WHAT IS STRAGGLE STRING UV?
-At first glance Straggle String UV may seem like many of the other “fritz” type tying materials, but take a closer look and you will find Straggle String UV is a carefully developed fly tying material and NOT just another off the peg product poached from the textiles trade.
A FEW FACTS ABOUT STRAGGLE STRING UV:
-Finer core than typical “fritz” type materials. Widest range of natural fly tying colors available. All colors were chosen and dyed by the SemperFli team. Coded colors to integrate with the SemperFli dubbing system. Reduced fiber density (less like a blob more like legs or a hackle). Reflective/refractive fibers provide insect-like iridescence. Subtle UV properties give the impression of life-like movement.
WHAT CAN STRAGGLE STRING UV BE USED FOR?
-The fact is it’s really up to you, but here are a few tips and tricks from the SemperFli team to get you started. The fine core means really slim bodies are possible. Try SF3300 on a curved hook for a fantastic bloodworm pattern or any of the natural colors under a shellback for a superb (and very quick to tie) shrimp. Lower fiber density coupled with fine core makes great thoraxes for bead head flies. The fine core absorbs much less water than standard fritz meaning Straggle String UV can be used in dry fly patterns. Finer material means smaller flies. Sizes 16, 18, and 20 can easily be tied. The wide range of natural colors is great for imitating the natural invertebrates that make up fishes’ diet.
This stunning micro chenille has just 2 strands making it extraordinarily thin – ideal for micro dry thorax’s on Klinkhammers and collars on nymphs. The stunning UV flecks imitate insect and invertebrate legs, ideal for Czech nymphs, Scuds, Etc…
