UV Chewee Skin
UV Chewee Skin from D's Flies is a pliable material great for wing cases, bodies, ribs and many other uses. UV Chewee skin has a natural sheen and is easy to use. UV fly tyng materials are more visible to salmon, trout, steelhead, and many,many other game and sport and food fish than standard dyed or even fluorescent materials. Many UV colors of UV Chewee Skin are available and allow fish to see them in low light and from afar.
Our fly tiers at the Caddis fly Angling Shop use UV Chewee Skin on a ton of their fly patterns, ranging from Chinook Salmon Comet fly patterns, Steelhead nymphs, and too more lakes trout fly patterns than we care to mention here. UV Chewee Skin has a multitude of uses like body materials (when cut into narrow strips), nymph wing pads, and the shell back on the good old tied down caddis wet fly. We use Chewee Skin for our bonefish and permit flies too. Bodies on Tarpon flies. Roskfish flies. Red Tail Surf Perch too. Here's a fly tying tip: Substitute UV Chewee Skin for Thin Skin and skip the epoxy, substitute Chewee skin for Turkey quills on stone fly nymphs.
