Straight from the mind of Blane Chocklett, his Gamechanger Chenille is easy to work with and provides instant bulk when building Gamechanger Bodies. Chockletts Gamechanger Chenille is a bulky chenille with fibers about ¾” to 1” wide that’s on a braided core. This material sheds water very well and doesn’t absorb water to make for patterns that can be cast easily. Perfect for making Game Changer bodies and flies, Gamechanger Chenille is super easy to work with and it has a slight flash integrated into it that reflects light well. And whether you’re looking to tie small shad, peanut bunker, or dace, this material can be easily colored with markers to create ultra-realistic color schemes. Freshwater, saltwater, and anything in between, Chockletts Gamechanger Chenille will enhance the look of any of your Game Changer patterns.
Chockletts Gamechanger Chenille was primarily created for building Game Changer bodies and heads, and it is most commonly used with a series of shanks to create lifelike Game Changer patterns. Although its intended purpose was for Game Changer flies, Chockletts Gamechanger Chenille can also be used to wrap dense streamer bodies and provide immediate support for veiling materials as well.
A material designed by Blane Chocklett to improve on his original Body Wrap material, Gamechanger Chenille is a material like few others. While no other chenilles offer the bulk and easy volume that Game Changer Chenille creates, Blane’s Finesse Chenille is a similar material. What sets these two chenilles apart is that Finesse Chenille doesn’t have any accented flash and Finesse Chenille has fibers attached only on one side of the core, while Chockletts Gamechanger Chenille has fibers wrapped all the way around the core. Both are great materials, but Gamechanger Chenille creates bulk and full bodies a bit more efficiently.
Chockletts Game Changer Chenille is a versatile material that can be worked into a variety of patterns. However, the most well-known fly that uses this chenille is undoubtedly the Game Changer.
