Hareline chenille is a standard chenille, coming in a variety of sizes and colors. Chenilles are made by laying fibers perpendicular between two threads and then twisting the threads so that the fibers radiate from the central twisted rope like core.The perpendicular fibers form a cylindrical fuzzy rope. This rope can be wound onto a hook shank to make a bulky fuzzy body. The cross fibers can be of many textures, colors and diameters. The most popular chenilles incorporate fine fibers made from nylon. They are soft to the touch and look very nice underwater. Chenille is used in many different popular fly patterns including the legendary Woolly Bugger.
Uses: Wrapping bodies, different colors can be used to create segmentation, or even to represent the difference between a head and a body.
Comparison: Similar to other synthetic chenilles by Hareline like Polar Chenille or Cactus Chenille, but these fibers are made out of nylon instead of plastic, so there is less shine and sparkle but more fuzziness.
Example Flies: Woolly Bugger, San Juan Worm
