Byron-

Please post a photo of the flies that you have with the palmer chenille.

On Saturday mornings, a group of us get together to eat doughnuts, tell lies, and tie flies. Last Saturday, we tied a saltwater Gotcha pattern, and use the chenille to palmer the head, and then trimmed the fibers pretty short. Not sure if it was a good use of this material or not. A chenille with short fibers may have been a better choice.

Anyway, with its long fibers, it seems like a good material for streamers, baitfish & buggers. I'd like to see your patterns.

Thanks

Bill
