What makes Palmer Chenille such a great fly tying material is its’ multitude of uses:
Because all the synthetic flash fibers are on one side of the core thread it can be wrapped like hackle and thus substituted for hackle on many types of flies.
Try it in place of a hen feather on steelhead and salmon flies, or on larger soft hackled wet fly patterns. Add flash to your Woolly Buggers by using it in place of a saddle hackle.
Palmer Chenille can also be wrapped to form dense body. If desired this body can be trimmed to a desired shape.
