12 mm Brill (Straggle String) with the addition of UV fibers, the color effects produced are extremely effective on “straggle” type lake patterns, and of course a great body for nymphs!
A great material for use on both trout, grayling and salmon patterns. Tie it in sparse for salmon patterns or use it as a body on trout/grayling patterns like boatman, beetles and more.
A very versatile material that should be in everyone's arsenal.
12mm fibres, 3 meters per card. From Textreme in Italy.
Brill UV (5mm Straggle String)
It differs from the classic Cactus for its thin and knitted particular core, which allows the effect fibers to be arranged more sparsely, yet strongly held. This material is of considerable help for the construction of medium-small bodies, without bulking the artificial pattern too much.
This is suitable for small and medium patterns. With an increased-size core designed to withstand high tensions.
The fine core means really slim bodies are possible. Try Brill on a curved hook for a fantastic bloodworm pattern or any of the natural colours under a shellback for a superb (and very quick to tie) shrimp. Or use it on a sparsely tied salmon pattern, the options are endless. Lower fibre density coupled with fine core makes great thoraxes for bead head flies.

I am so happy to be able to offer this 20mm length polar chenille. This chenille works great both for collaring and palmering. 3 yards/pkg.

Chocklett's Finesse Body Chenille
Available in Medium, 3/4", or Large, 1 1/4", this chenille is amazing.
For tying Gamer Changer style streamers and other palmered baitfish imitations.
Chocklett’s Finesse Body Chenille is a synthetic chenille perfect for tying Game Changer style flies. It’s not quite a dense as Chocklett’s Body Wrap, so it works well on smaller flies while the finished fly has more micro movement. From palmering the chenille to adding a few wraps to the front of a fly to fish it off, this chenille increases your options when tying Game Changers and other palmered baitfish imitations. Try it with the Articulated Fish Spine.
Chocklett's Game Changer Chenille
Chocklett's Game Changer Chenille is a translucent and markable material specifically designed to be combined with the Articulated Spine system and Living Eyes to tie the Game Changer, a phenomenal, multi-jointed streamer designed by Blane Chocklett.
Game Changer Chenille is ideal for tying small-to-medium size Game Changers (typically between 3 to 4 inches long).
Tip from Blane: Steam your Chenille before tying with it because it will help you get the most out of the material. Popular options for this include holding it over boiling water or using a handheld steamer.

Our version of eyelash materials in solid colors. Flowing fibers add movement and depth to the fly.
FNF Chewing Gum (3 mm)
Use this to make the extremely effective "Chewing Gum Worm"!
This 3 mm material is a soft rubbery chenille ideal for bodies and chewing gum worms. The soft material is mounted on a nano core so it can be easily stripped of to tie in. The gum is buoyant so when tied in to flies it will slow down their sink rate. This has proven very deadly when creating worm patterns. The fly sinks very slowly holding in the kill box for longer. Tie in a bead if you want to fish it under a bung.
The material has a soft curl to it so any movement will kick life into the worm as the curl opens out and then returns. The chewing gum material is very lumpy giving it a more life like appearance.
To say I'm excited over the possibilities that this material has is an understatement. I'm already tying with it and it is amazing. Susan
Here's what the folks at FNF have to say about it:
For a long time here at FNF we have been trying to develop a chenille incorporating mobile soft rubber legs. We beleived this type of material would have lots of applications from lures for under a bung right to crab patterns for bone fish and everything in between. The rubber legs are 30mm long mounted on a micro core for easy tieing. We also incorporated a thin layer of slush jelly like material along the core to give the material some body.
This will prove an excellent material as it provides lots of colour and movement into any pattern.
We have particularly enjoyed fishing small foam back creepers through the surface layers.
These patterns can easily be tied to international rules.
Each bag contains 2m of Creeper.

Palmer Chenille is a Mylar based flash product with all of its fibers on a single side. When wrapped in closely spaced wraps around the hook, it makes a dense, flashy body and when palmered forward in evenly spaced wraps, it makes for a sparse body with lots of fiber movement and flash. Used in the latterly manner, it can be substituted for a saddle hackle. Try it in place of a saddle hackle on flies like the Woolly Bugger. One-sided design.
