Product Information

Entomology Meets Physics On The Fly
This season think outside the box and try what Europe’s & USA fly fishing champions have been putting to work science & entomology to catch more fish.
Optics is the study of light. Optics, a segment of physics, evaluates and analyzes the properties and behaviors of light. Polarization, diffraction, and interference are studied in optics. Reflection and refraction of light 
1. Trout see colours, yet water changes their perception  “water absorbs and scatters light.” In freshwater, red is absorbed completely by six feet down. Trout see it as a shade of grey. 
According to Gary Borger, orange, yellow, and green get to ten feet before turning to grey. Blue only makes it to four feet.
2. Fluorescent materials retain their colours as long as there is light.
Gary Borger makes this point and adds that “black is always black, and flash is always flash.” Surprisingly, black may be the most “visible” color due to its contrast. Perhaps that explains why a black Copper John or a Zebra Midge can work so well.
3. Trout are more perceptive to the violet side of the colour spectrum.
Kirk Deeter made this point in a recent issue of TROUT magazine. Now I know why I’m seeing a rise (no pun intended) in purple Beadhead Prince Nymphs and in the Purple Haze patterns (essentially a Parachute Adams with a purple body) in the bins in fly shops.
4. Use something bright or translucent in your attractor patterns on the surface.
It’s always good to match the hatch. As Kirk Deeter says, go “as natural as possible.” But when you are using an attractor pattern on the river’s surface, red or orange will appear bright.
5. The number of variables determining the way trout sees colour can make a fly fisher crazy.
The way trout see colour depends on several variables – the clarity of the water, the light conditions (cloudy vs. sunny, evening light vs. mid-day light), and the depth of the fly.

The colours coupled with magic Quills have been developed With this science in mind with the history of tying patterns that trigger a take from most freshwater species.
The Magic Shuttlecock is Very effective during hatches when fish are feeding on emergers
The Shuttlecock is a proven modern fly whose body hangs temptingly just under the surface film using the natural buoyancy of CDC feathers. and now the addition of Magic Quill and colours
