Hareline UV Polar Chenille is a great product for adding lightweight bulk and flash to a fly. The chenille consists of thin mylar strands around a twisted rope core. Extremely durable and easy to use a must-have for any tyer.
Patterns and Tying Techniques - UV Polar Chenille is a perfect substitute for hackle and dubbing brushing in anything from Bugger patterns and leeches to wet flies and shrimp patterns. Wrapped as a body material it is great for supporting soft wings like marabou.
Harline UV Polar Chenille vs Hareline Catus Chenille - The UV Polar Chenille has long flowing fibers that add the illusion of bulk to a fly. Cactus Chenille has a similar appearance but with shorter denser fibers.
Streamers - UV Polar Chenille is perfect for leech patterns and Woolly Buggers. It is also used in Galloup’s Bangtail T&A. It can also be used for Saltwater flies like the Polar Chenille Shrimp and the Big Ugly Bonefish Fly.
Approximate Dimensions - The fibers are roughly an inch in length.
Pack Size - 5 yards per pack.
