Good lightweight wire
Reviewer: A viewer from Corvallis, OR US
This is an excellent wire for adding weight to smaller flies, or giving a new quality to bigger patterns without adding much weight. Unfortunatly, the new tyer (like myself) will need to learn a light hand when using this wire, or else be faced with the frustration of breaking it every 4 turns or so!
Ever heard of the pheasant tail nymph?
Reviewer: A viewer from Greenville, SC US
Small red wire and a few fibers from a pheasant tail is what made the original english pattern called the pheasant tail nymph. I tie this same pattern today using the wire as both weight, building the thorax, and as "tying thread". Wire offers many possibilities to the fly tyer and Wapsi Ultra Wire is definately affordable.
