Spectrum Glimmer Chenille

Spectrum Glimmer Chenille


We are using this new chenille in place of Polar Chenille to bring new life and dimension to a lot of our favorite salmon and steelhead flies. It adds bulk, movement and flash to your flies without adding weight. Tie it in just like chenille and wrap it forward. Very easy to work with and flies tied with it fish beautifully. 3 Yards per package. Chenille fibers average about 3/4″.

New for 2023! Spectrum Glimmer Chenille is by far one of our favorite new body materials for salmon and steelhead flies. It is similar to UV Polar Chenille, only so much more. It all of the uv glitz with a little more glamour. It can be palmered in with materials such as Crosscut Rabbit and Cactus Chenille, or it can be used as a stand alone for bodies and collars. Try subbing it in on patterns like Jig Spanker 2.0 or Mr. Bo Dangles. The sparse one sided chenille really does make flies flashier without adding to much bulk. Spectrum Glimmer Chenille sheds water almost  instantly, keeping large salmon and steelhead flies in the realm of being castable.
