    Chenille seems to come in two types Stiff and sparse and Good. easy to apply with nice body. The Orvis Chenille is the good kind.

    Great chenille. I live in Alabama (aka bass country) so I tie a lot of wooly buggers. I know the description says it is great for nymphs, but it is the perfect size for size 6 wooly buggers. Great chenille.

    It's brown (a reddish brown; it matches "rust" marabou quite nicely, if you want your buggers to look right). It's fuzzy. And it will entice some very nice trout. In about 86,400 minutes. No, 86,399.
