Wound like chenille, this braid has many reflective surfaces with pearlescent tones to give the fly a sparkling, lifelike body. Makes perfect bodies for both saltwater and freshwater patterns. 4 yards per package.
This material worked great for some flies I tied for Northern Pike fishing in Canada. I coated the body with 5 minute epoxy to produce a tough transparent finish that let the color and sparkle shine through. Caught several pike and the teeth barley made a dent in the body. I am going to try this technique out for some saltwater patterns.
