Tinsel and Fly tying wire


Tinsel and fly tying wire are indispensable for many patterns.

The softer tinsel is particularly suitable for dry flies, but is also used for ribbing many wet flies and nymphs.

Wire, predominantly gold and silver coloured, is mostly used for nymphs.

Soft Wire is the ideal product for metallic bodies, such as the Copper John.

Swissflies offers exceptional quality and rarities at moderate prices.

The classic English tinsel. It has little weight, making it ideal for dry flies.

The thicker French oval is indispensable for tying various salmon fly patterns.

Gold is mainly used in the large (LG) and medium (MD) thicknesses for salmon flies. The fine French oval XS is perfect for dry fly rigs.

Silver-coloured French oval is used in medium (MD) strength for classic salmon flies such as the Silver Stoats Tail.

However, the fine (SM=small) and very fine extrasmall (XS) silver-coloured French oval is far more particularly popular for tying various midge patterns .
