Semperfli Straggle String UV Micro Chenille at first glance may seem like many of the other “fritz” type tying materials. Take a closer look though and you will find it is a carefully developed fly tying material and not just another off the peg product poached from the textiles trade.
Semperfli Straggle String UV Micro Chenille features: finer core than typical “fritz” type materials; widest range of natural fly tying colours available; colours chosen by and dyed by the SemperFli team; coded colours to integrate with the SemperFli dubbing system; reduced fibre density (less like a blob more like legs or a hackle); reflective/refractive fibres provide insect-like iridescence; subtle UV properties give the impression of life-like movement.
Semperfli Straggle String UV Micro Chenille can be used for a wide range of applications. The fine core means really slim bodies are possible. As an example try the SF3300 colour on a curved hook for a fantastic bloodworm pattern or any of the natural colours under a shellback for a superb and very quick to tie shrimp. Lower fibre density coupled with fine core makes great thoraxes for bead head flies.
The fine core absorbs much less water than standard fritz meaning Semperfli Straggle String UV Micro Chenille can be used in dry fly patterns. Finer material means smaller flies. Sizes 16, 18, and 20 can easily be tied. The wide range of natural colours is great for imitating the natural invertebrates that make up fishes’ diet.
