:-/ * I am a new tier and am tying tellico nymphs using yellow rayon chenille for the body. I have tied 10's and 12's and am ready to go to 14's and 16's. The chenille I am using is too large for the smaller hooks. What would you suggest using for the body of smaller tellicos?

:) Hello Michael, there are many dubbings that you can use and you'll probably get several responses to you questions. If you're in LROs any time soon, get a pack of the Light Yellow Antron dubbing and try it. It is a Wapsi product. Good luck and let us know how it turned out as well as other types that you might use.

I have tied using yellow floss as well.

Yellow silk floss works well for smaller size Tellicos along with yellow rabbit dubbing. You can also do a variation on the traditional Tellico nymph using gold or golden stonefly color dubbing but, that usually works better in larger sizes.
