Tinsel® Line

What can fish see? Vision is an important sensory system for fish but do they see the same as human?

Fish eye has pigments that absorb various but different wavelengths than human can see (Visible light) and cannot see (Ultraviolet light). A wide range of fish species has developed and maintained this ability for survival throughout evolution. Many species of fish can see the ultraviolet end of the spectrum, beyond the violet as well as visible range. At the same time, however, most of them have more specific colors they can or cannot see even in the visible range.

In addition, fishes live in a different light environment than human. Water absorbs light so that with increasing depth the amount of light available decreases quickly. The optical properties of water also lead to different wavelength of light being absorbed to different degrees. Visible light of long wavelengths (red, orange) is absorbed quicker than light of shorter wavelengths (green, blue). 

Thus, fish has different visible range and lives in different environment than that of human. Hitena’s research started from there.

We studied what is the best spectrum for fish to see and what they like and dislike by species and developed Tinsel® lines based on what we found from the lab and countless tests by our field testers. We approached the Tinsel® not as a complimentary option but as an auxiliary bait for lure fishing. 

To maximize reflection, Hitena’s Tinsel® lines are micro processed to cut as narrow as 0.15 mm which is the thinnest in the world. 8 most appealing colors - Hologram Gold, Hologram Silver, Aurora Gold, Aurora Silver, Aurora Red, Aurora, UV, Glow were selected and processed with UV films, UV filament and Fluorescent thread. Then, IRS-UV (Infinite Random Sequence) that has more than 70% broadband reflection in UV-A, B, C was added for the best result. We produce over 50 kinds of Tinsel®, and all of them are patented worldwide. Just find the right type and color for your target fishes, Tinsel® will do the rest.
