    This is high quality stuff. I use it for ribbing nymphs primarily. I'm not sure what else to say... It is easy to work with, comes in a bunch of colors and gauges of wire, and the quality is consistent. I couldn't ask for more!

    I used to use brassie size Ultra wire even for small flies, but now that I see how well it ribs and how easily it helicopters (breaks) off when you have finished tying it off, I am sticking with this new x-small size.

    Very good product - 1/16/2014

    I have used Ultra Wire for several years now and find it to be an excellent product. As an ingrediant for attractor patterns it is unsurpassed as far as I am concerned. I have found red to be the most productive even though I have most if not all the colors. I have most if not all the sizes also. Very good stuff.

    This wire is perfect for tying delicate segments of insect immitations in nymphs or drys. Protects against shred by trout teeth on any pattern. An excellent value.
