Description

Perdigons, first developed by the Spanish fly fishing team and popularized by the French, are in use worldwide. The Perdigon nymph is simple; the small slim profile and weight causes them to sink rapidly, even in fast water. Key to Perdigons is a nymph-like body color and an ultra smooth body that can be achieved with fine thread like Nano Silk. The Semperfli R&D team created a 1/69/0.37mm body material and decided on a range of deadly colours and triggers for our Perdigon Body material. Following fishing trials, they decided on a range of iridescent and translucent colors that suited our Perdigon patterns and added in Fluoro and Luminous Perdigon Body tinsels that could be used for complete bodies or as highlight ribs to act as an additional trigger. 30 meters per spool.

Perdigons

Reviewer: from Springville, UT.

This stuff is basically thin cut flashabou on a spool... Easily makes Perdigon bodies. This is a semi transparent product. By simply changing thread colors on standard Perdigons (or other fly patterns with thread underbodies) brings a whole new level of depth and color possibilities, including those with UV tones. The colors will really "pop" with a coating of UV resin (which I recommend doing) as well. I particularly like this product on my chironomid patterns specifically... My only complaint is that it is very thinly cut, almost as thin as flattened 70D thread which can be difficult to cover a body without spaces. This product also makes a really nice body ribbing on traditional patterns such as pheasant tail and hare's ear nymphs and even dry flies too. Great color palette to choose from that should suit the needs of even the most demanding of fly tyers.

Very nice

Reviewer: from N. GA

I've just started using this on perdigons and I like it. It lays flat and doesn't overly change colors when UV coated.
