C - Palmer Chenille

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. When palmered forward in evenly spaced wraps, it makes for a sparse body with lots of fiber movement and flash. When used in the latter manner, it can be substituted for a saddle hackle. Try it in place of a saddle hackle on flies like the Woolly Bugger.

The small size also makes a very nice synthetic replacement for hen saddle. A turn or two of Palmer Chenille is just the ticket for creating new renditions of your favorite wet fly patterns.
