Neon Hackle 15mm UV Fritz £2.99
THIS bright, non-translucent type of straggle fritz has the added attraction of neon and UV fibres which makes it perfect for mini lures and also for creating palmered wet flies such as Dabblers. The fibres become quite soft when wet, producing an enticing wave and pulsating movement as the pattern is pulled through the water, and the UV filaments incorporated into the material give it that extra bit of zing. The fibres are very well bonded to the super-fine woven core, but can be stripped off using your thumb and forefinger to expose the core when securing the material onto the hook. Although labelled as 15mm, the samples that I had for review were mainly made up of 10-12mm fibre lengths, but were still sufficient to give plenty of movement. The UV Fritz is available in fluo green, fluo orange, fluo pink, fluo red, fluo yellow, olive and sunburst. It also available as standard Neon Hackle 15mm Fritz without the UV in black, blood red, coral, fluo orange, fluo pink, fluo red, fluo yellow, olive and sunburst.
