From tailing material on stoneflies (both nymphs and adults) to perfectly segmented spinner bodies, Spirit River’s UV2 Turkey Biots can do it all. These Turkey Biots come in a variety of different colors so that you can match any insect in your local waters, and when palmered onto a hook, they give a realistic appearance that few other materials offer. Also, these Turkey Biots feature Spirit River’s UV2 double-dye process that displays UVF (ultraviolet fluorescence) and UVR (ultraviolet reflectance) wavelengths in your flies, making them even more appealing. Versatile fibers that can be used for nymphs, dry flies, terrestrials, emergers, and wet flies, there’s a place for Spirit River’s UV2 Turkey Biots on everyone's tying desk.
Spirit River UV2 Turkey Biots are versatile fibers with a range of uses. Their most common application is to palmer them and create clean segmented bodies on nymphs, dry flies, emergers, and wet flies. However, their uses don’t end there, as they can also be tied in to create wonderful antennae and tails on insects like stoneflies, and they can even be knotted to craft realistic hopper, cricket, and legs.
Turkey Biots are most commonly compared to Goose Biots. Both of these fibers come directly from the flight feathers of these birds, but the fibers on Turkey Biots tend to be a bit longer and also thinner. While both of these materials are staples for tying tails, Turkey Biots are palmered much easier and are the superior choice when you’re looking to create segmented bodies.
