UV2 Teal Flank
UV2 Teal Flank feathers are a timeless material for nymphs and traditional wet flies. Treated with UV capabilities, UV2 Teal Flank Feathers are a classic material with a modern twist.
The distinct and unique natural barring on a teal flank feather makes it a fantastic option for nymph legs or tails, as well as posts on certain dry fly patterns. Available in a selection of dyed colors, these feathers are treated with UV fluorescence and reflectance to get the fish’s attention when your fly is in the water.
What is UV2 Technology?It is a double dye process to give all of their UV2 materials and flies added UVF/UVR ultraviolet wavelengths. UV Florescence is used on everything from street signs to fly tying materials. UV Reflectance on the other hand is a spectrum of wavelengths humans cannot visually see; yet it is extremely common in the animal and insect world. UVR allows mayflies to find mates, and bees to find flowers. Fish can see it, and they love it. UV materials and flies are becoming much more popular within the fly-fishing world because of the success they bring while on the water.
