Hareline Ultra Chenille is your standard tried and true chenille. Used in tons of fly patterns from fresh to saltwater, it is a staple that you should always have on your tying desk. Hareline Ultra Chenille is uniform and described as “velvety”, extremely durable, and available in a number of colors and sizes.
Patterns and Tying Techniques - Hareline Ultra Chenille can be used to create bodies for Woolly Buggers and to tie the deadly San Juan Worm. You can use it for crab claws for saltwater patterns and as shrimp bodies. The uses are only limited by your imagination.
Hareline Ultra Chenille vs Hareline Catus Chenille - Ultra Chenille is soft and has a texture and looks more like dubbing. Cactus Chenille is flashier and gives a buggier look. Catus Chenille is small pieces of mylar around a twisted rope core and Ultra Chenille is Antron or similar soft material around a twisted core. Use the Ultra Chenille when you want a more subdued natural-looking fly.
Streamers - Ultra Chenille is perfect for tying Woolly Buggers. It is also the main material in San Juan Worms. It is a great choice for a quick body on Steelhead and Salmon flies like the Comet. It can also be used to tie stoneflies like the Bitch Creek. The Squimp is a great example of a Shrimp fly using Ultra Chenille.
