All the latest posts here about SRC flies and their success rates inspired me to take a couple photos of a few flies under a blacklight, which shows what materials are effected by UV (ultraviolet) rays. I've known this for quite a long time and had been discussing this more recently with my fishing partner Mark. I thought I would attempt to take a couple of photos to illustrate for those who don't give much thought to using florescent materials. They are blurry, but, keep in mind that fish can see UV light. To have a little fun...if you have a handheld battery operated blacklight, take it to your local fly shop or shine it on your fly tying materials in the dark. You will be amazed! The attached photos are squids I am experimenting with in my Popsicle Stick pattern colors, and the other is a group of used Popsicle Sticks. For those that don't know, the main colors are hotpink, chartruese, salmon colored Litebrite, hotpink polymarabou. You will find many colors that make you smile with your blacklight, and you will be on your way to the fly shop soon! Have fun!! Maybe this is nothing new to most of you, but thought I would post it anyway.
