Since Joseph Keen's book ‐ Fluorescent Flies (1964) and Thomas Clegg's book ‐ The Truth About Fluorescents (1967) fly tyers have been working with fluorescent materials. Today there are different fluorescent flosses available. However the manufacturing quality of such materials can vary with some flosses coming in different sizes from the same manufacturer! This makes it difficult for fly tyers. We decided to make a fluorescent thread with advantages that it could be used as a tying thread or as a floss. For floss simply untwist with the bobbin for flat fibers. Fluoro Brite was born to be different. What is well known is that fluorescent materials do a ract trout, salmon and other species. We cannot see material effects except under a UV torch where we see the glow. But with their visual rods and cones capable of seeing into the UV spectrum many fish species see this like a light in the dark. Fluorescent materials work well one hour before daylight and one hour a er nigh all. This is because even though we cannot see them, UV rays from the sun

Recommended hook size guide #10 to 2/0 and above. For smaller flies split Fluoro Brite to use down to size 20! Use as hot spot, fluorescent ribbing, body or hot spot tail For use as a floss simply untwist using your bobbin holder to create a flat floss

HINT Use several strands of Fluoro Brite as a tail, cut and tease the fibers with a dubbing brush. Because Fluoro Brite is twisted you will be left with a stunning, crinkled, fluorescent tail which produces ‘sparkles’ like fireflies at the end of the tail under a UV light and of course in water from sunlight hitting your flies.
