UV2 Turkey Biots for Fly Tying
UV2 Turkey Biots are one of the best materials when tying dry flies or emergers.
Longer than goose biots, turkey biots tend to be easier to work with due to their increased length. We love using these UV2 Turkey Biots when we are tying segmented bodies on dries and emergers. The UVF and UVR treatment of this material really gets the fish’s attention, especially during evening hatches when the light is low.
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.
