Flat Color Wire provides more reflecting surface than round wire, to great effect, and also a little more strength. When used as ribbing on the body it cuts less into your dubbing,which enhances the ribbing effect even more. This way, Flat Wire combines the advantages of tinsel and the strength of wire! This large Flat Wire is excellent for big and very big patterns of streamers, salmon and sea flies. It is also excellent for "Copper" patterns. 11 meters (12 yards) per spool.
