If one decides to use any of the UV2 products, Spirit River suggests that one of these three materials be used as a base - under the abdomen or thorax of the pattern:

Pearl Mylar...

This is a variation of Loren Williams' BARON with Pearl Mylar under the UV2 Turkey Biot abdomen:

If one wishes to slide into the use of these materials gradually, I suggest trying the UV2 dubbing enhancers to mix with a regular dubbing...(on left):

I will not use the spay on stuff which I consider to be overkill and of dubious effectiveness...

If these materials did not work, Craig Matthews would not be offering them, in a number of his proven patterns, sold at Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone
