What can Straggle String Micro Chenille Be Used For?
The fact is it’s really up to you… but here are a few tips and tricks from the Semperfli team to get you started.
– The fine core means really slim bodies are possible. Try Straggle String on a curved hook for a fantastic bloodworm pattern or any of the natural colors under a shellback for a superb (and very quick to tie) shrimp.
– Lower fiber density coupled with the fine core of Straggle String Micro Chenille makes great thoraxes for bead head flies.
– The fine core absorbs much less water than standard fritz meaning Straggle String Micro Chenille can be used in dry fly patterns
– Finer material means smaller flies. Sizes 16, 18, and 20 can easily be tied with Straggle String Micro Chenille
– The wide range of natural colors is great for imitating the natural invertebrates that make up fishes’ diet.
– Bright and fluoro colors are great for “hot spots” or attractor patterns.
– Life-like gives an illusion of movement means simple flies can be tied without the need for
other materials.
