UV2 Elk Hair

Good elk is getting tougher to find. We high grade our elk. I know you can find it cheaper...but not likely any better. We grade each hide and frankly we return nearly as much as we buy. Our sticking point is good tips and no junk. As with any natural animal, our elk varies slightly. This is good because most tiers prefer certain color shades, thickness, or density. Each and every piece is hand graded then cut.

Our premium Tanned Elk is the choice material for Elk Caddis or Stimulators because it is just slightly heavier than deer. Also makes tight floating tails on Hairwings. And trust me when I say that good elk is hard to find.

UV2 FLY TYING MATERIALS from SPIRIT RIVER Spirit River now has the ability to process fly tying materials with both UVF and UVR, just like Mother Nature. UVF is the fluorescent wavelength in bright colors which allows fish to see flies at greater distance in most water conditions. UVR is the reflective UV light that cannot be readily seen with the human eye, but is very visible in the animal and insect world. Bees use it to find flowers, mayflies use it to choose mates, and fish naturally key on it as a safe food choice. By closely mimicking Mother Nature's UV color patterns we gain a new advantage on the most wary trout.
