UV Film for Tying Flies
UV film is a thin, transparent sheet of material that reflects ultraviolet light. It is often used in fly tying to create bodies, tails, and other features that are visible to fish under UV light.
UV film is available in a variety of colors, including clear, blue, green, pink, and yellow. It can be cut to any desired shape and size, and it is easy to work with.
To use Veniard UV Film Sheet for tying flies, you will need a few basic materials:
- A fly tying vice
- A pair of scissors
- A UV thread
- A UV resin
Once you have your materials, you can start tying your fly. First, select a piece of UV film in the desired color. Cut the film to the desired shape and size, and then tie it to the hook with the UV thread.
Once the film is tied to the hook, you can start building the rest of the fly. You can use UV film to create the body, tail, wings, and other features of the fly.
When you are finished tying the fly, you will need to apply a coat of UV resin. The resin will help to protect the film and make it more durable.
Once the resin is dry, your fly is ready to fish. When fish see the UV film under UV light, they will be attracted to it. This can help you to catch more fish, especially in clear water.
Here are some tips for using UV film for tying flies:
- Use a sharp pair of scissors to cut the film to the desired shape and size.
- Use a UV thread that is the same color as the film. This will help to blend the film into the fly.
- Apply a thin coat of UV resin. Too much resin will make the fly bulky and difficult to fish.
- Let the resin dry completely before fishing the fly.
UV film is a versatile material that can be used to create a variety of different fly patterns. With a little practice, you can learn to use UV film to create flies that are both attractive and effective.
Here are some examples of flies that can be made with UV film:
UV film can also be used to create other fly tying materials, such as beads, ribbing, and wings. With a little creativity, you can use UV film to create flies that are truly unique.
