At first glance Straggle String UV may seem like many of the other “fritz” type tying materials… Take a closer look though and you will find Straggle String UV is a carefully developed fly tying material and NOT just another off the peg product poached from the textiles trade.

A FEW FACTS ABOUT STRAGGLE STRING UV

  • Finer core than typical “fritz” type materials
  • Widest range of natural fly tying colours available
  • Colours chosen by and dyed by the Semper Fli team
  • Coded colours to integrate with the Semper Fli dubbing system
  • Reduced fibre density (less like a blob more like legs or a hackle)
  • Reflective/refractive fibres provide insect-like iridescence
  • Subtle UV properties give the impression of life-like movement

WHAT CAN STRAGGLE STRING UV BE USED FOR?

The fact is it’s really up to you… but here are a few tips and tricks from the Semper Fli team to get you started.

  • The fine core means really slim bodies are possible. Try SF3300 on a curved hook for a fantastic bloodworm pattern or any of the natural colours under a shellback for a superb (and very quick to tie) shrimp.
  • Lower fibre density coupled with fine core makes great thoraxes for bead head flies.
  • The fine core absorbs much less water than standard fritz meaning Straggle String UV can be used in dry fly patterns
  • Finer material means smaller flies. Sizes 16, 18, and 20 can easily be tied.
  • The wide range of natural colours is great for imitating the natural invertebrates that make up fishes’ diet.
  • Bright and fluoro colours are great for “hot spots” or attractor patterns.
  • Natural colours coupled with Straggle String UV’s life-like illusion of movement means simple flies can be tied without the need for other materials. Check out the JP Straggle Nymph!
