Peacock herl has been used for many years as a stunning fly tying material. With its stunning iridescence, fly tyers love the way the colors change as you look at this amazing material. Because of limitations on the use of natural peaccock, the Semperfli team decided to create a synthetic peacock herl that would reflect different colors. Desiogn to imitate real peacock, this Synthetic Peacock Herl has black, blue and green backgrounds and different colored tinsels embedded. With this synthetic herl you can cover the hook very quickly with simple wraps to create a perfect alternative to natural peacock herl without the concern that your feather will snap mid fly. It comes in multiple sizes and colors.
Key features of Synthetic Peacock Herl -
- It is far far stronger than natural peacock herl, and being so robust it will make a fly with an exposed area like a Klinkhammer thorax last longer before it is destroyed.
- The length is not limited to the length of the herl like natural.
- 3 different color variants which can be used alone or weaved together to enhance effect.
When Semperfli worked on the prototypes of this product, they sent it to their Pro Team Members for for testing and received exciting feedback. Hans van Klinken immediately used it as the thorax of his Klinkhamer and reported that it is absolutely great, awesome for Klinkhamer 2.0 for size 12 and larger flies.
