This is the UV 2 product line that will be in Fly Shops soon:

Another new product from Spirit River that will find it’s way into some Spring patterns I have in my head…

Spirit River Halo Wire…

“This is a very fine gold wire with a creamy-clear vinyl coating. It gives a very realistic segmentation and a slight glow emits from under the body. This wire is prefect for wets and nymphs bodies in sizes 10 thru 16. It also takes a marker well so the options are endless.”

I have already seen a Caddis Larva tied with this material…very interesting…in fact, it kinda’ looked lie this:

HALO LARVA, #14-#16…(1.14.2012)…MORE on this later…
