Peacock has always been a primary tying material because it works extremely well. Peacock has a natural iridescence that will refract light in many wave lengths which seems to attract fish. Now we have them in dyed colors giving the tier a new range on patterns that have traditionally used peacock. Try tying a prince nymph with the purple peacock. Try using another color for a Royal Coachman.
Though darker colors do not fluoresce, our peacock does emit the UVR ultra violet wave lengths.
Makes a ton of useful patterns.
Spirit River continues to lead the way in UV2 technology. We have used a double dye process to give all our unique UV2 materials and flies the added UVF/UVR ultraviolet wave lengths. We all know UV Florescence which is so common on everything from street signs to bass lures. UV Reflectence is a spectrum of wave lengths humans can not perceive yet is extremely common in the animal and insect world. UVR allows mayflies to find mates, and bees to find flowers. Many male birds and bugs have a strong natural UVR signature.
