Ultra Tinsel

Ultra Tinsel

  • Available in 7 different varieties in as many as 4 sizes and 10 colors

A staple on the fly tying bench

Many classic fly patterns such as the Black-nosed Dace and Muddler Minnow call for a body made with flat tinsel. Unlike the tinsels of yesteryear, Ultra Tinsel is very strong and wraps perfectly flat, making beautiful, durable bodies. In addition to being used on traditional streamer patterns, Ultra Tinsel is ideal for flashback nymphs, midges, and saltwater flies. The uses of Ultra Tinsel are as broad as the imagination of the fly tyer.

Not just gold or silver

Ultra Tinsel is available in a wide range of colors and finishes, including special reflective properties, holographic patterns, glow-in-the-dark properties, and two-tone finishes.
