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.

Brill UV (Straggle String)
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.
Chadwick Wool Substitute
Veniard's had this replica developed in Germany. As close to the original sawyers nymph wool as possible used in the Killer bug pattern.

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.

The Flybox T-15 Translucent is made from a durable and dyeable translucent material. This material gives a unique jellylike look in the water and is great for tying blob and lure patterns.

FNF Daphnia Fritz
This is the new Daphnia Fritz produced and developed solely by FNF. This material will give you a completely new style of blob or egg pattern. The completely translucent fibre is bonded to a micro core for easy tying. The material is very dense and only takes approx 5 turns to fill a size 8 FNF blob hook. Wide gape hooks are required in conjunction so as not to mask the hook point. The translucency of the material will allow other colours and beads to bleed through
Advances in technology and materials have allowed FNF to take their award winning 15 mm Jelly and improve it. They have given the material -
Twice the fluorescence.
Softer in the fish mouths.
Still keeping all the other great qualities of original Jelly Fritz. Micro core, easy to use etc.
The fibres (15mm) are completely translucent and bonded to a micro core. This is a very user friendly fritz.
Try to pack in as many turns as possible when tying with jelly to get a more translucent effect. Mixing colours can result in amazing effects.

Tie the Jelly Tot just like the photo here.
See how the color underneath glows through the outer larger 15mm Jelly Fritz!
This is the same translucent, soft Jelly Frtiz as the larger 15mm version but in a Micro 6mm size. Use it under 15mm Fl. Milk as shown above. Experiment with different colors underneath to create Blobs that are wildly different than any others!
FNF Slush Jelly
FNF have spent a lot of time perfecting an easy to use 15mm fritz/chenille that gives a slush like appearance in the water. A mixture of jelly fibres and a candy floss like compound gives this material its slushy appearance when wet. Slush Jelly is a 15mm fritz/chenille mounted on a micro core.
This material can be used for many applications and Trout in particular love the slushy fibrous appearance.
Slush Jelly has also been designed to be extremely soft to reduce the chance of fish spitting the material out before you even know they have taken it.
Please note the colours will intensify once wet. 2m per pack. From FNF.
