UNI-Flexx is a fine elastic strand and comes in fifteen colors: Chartreuse, Yellow, White, Green Highlander, Royal Blue, Camel, Purple, Fushia, Orange, Red, Dark Brown, Black, Grey and Olive Dun (new 2009). A 20 spool combo of mixed colors is also available. The strand may be divided into even smaller strands if desired.
UNI-Flexx can be used for: "rubber" legs and skirts; some like it as a floss replacement because it is much easier to handle; bodies of small nymphs, larva, and pupa. The stretch permits the material to be laid on the hook with a variety of tensions, thus reducing or avoiding slippage. In many cases it is not the stretch which is most important, rather the texture and stiffness and availability in a variety of vibrant colours. Moreover, the material retains the original colour when wet, unlike many others. As usual, uses are only limited by the tier's imagination.
UNI Products Inc., a world leader in supplying spooled fly-tying materials.
UNI Products started when Mr. Jean-Guy Côté, a well-known fly-tier was looking for innovative products to tie his flies. He decided to spool his original discovery, a thread with improved tying characteristics when compared with existing market offerings. At first Jean-Guy only intended to share the new product with his fly-tying friends, but soon the demand increased to the point where he decided to do it in full time.
