Dispenser has 12 of the most popular colors. As with all UV2 dubbings, these have a mix of primary colors that have been enhanced with UV Florescence and UV Reflectence dyes. Spirit River has the ability to process fly tying materials with both UVF and UVR. 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. Spirit River blends these in with other fibers to achieve the overall base color while still giving the dubbing all the multi-color properties of UV2. Each dubbing will kick out a host of color spectrums. Check them out in direct sunlight. It is best to always use a pearl or silver Mylar under base or even basic white thread which will bounce any light back out of the pattern at a different wave length.
