The Story

Ultra Wire is the hottest item in fly tying! A fine-gauge coated copper wire, this material is perfect for tying midges and nymphs of all types. Ultra Wire has changed fly tying as innovative patterns like the Copper John appear, using colored wire as a primary body material.

A great material for tying Brassies of all colors. Made in USA.

Sizes: Extra Small, Small, Medium, Large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Store had all the materials I needed. Taking the virtual Orvis fly tying classes with my daughter. A great way to spend Thursday evenings with her. We live in VA and will fish the Rapp for shad in April and also go to our cabin in NW PA to fish Oil Creek for trout. Love ealy season nymphs and wooly buggers we're tying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely disgusted Bought a spool of copper and a spool of red in Xs costing a total of £9.40 delivered to Northern Ireland. The amount of wire on each spool is disgraceful. Absolutely fuming at my purchase and will be returning it as it’s not as described. Would not recommend this product although other Orvis products are 1st class. Very disappointed customer unfortunately.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Uneconomical Length of Wire on the Spool There is so little wire on the spool that there are gaps in the wire where the spool shows through. I would not have purchased had I realised how much I was (not) getting. Should've read the other reviews, doh!
