The hottest material in fly tying
Essential for tying the Copper John
Awesome for ribbing, weight, flash, wire, and dubbing brushes
Non-tarnishing, rich, vibrant color
Wapsi UTC Ultra Wire – Most everyone knows that Ultra Wire is the essential material needed for tying John Barr’s famous Copper John nymph, but it can also be used several different ways. It is awesome for ribbing, weight, flash, wire, and dubbing brushes. Flies can be tied completely out of Ultra Wire if you desire. For a unique look, try wrapping two different colors of Ultra Wire together making a banded, segmented body. Another neat trick is to insert a piece of Ultra Wire into clear or colored stretch tubing. When wrapped, this makes a wild looking segmented body. Since Ultra Wire is a non-tarnishing wire, the colors will remain rich, vibrant, and bold long after your flies have been tied. You can expect their color to remain true for their entire life in your fly box.
