The MOP UV chenille allows you to create MOP Flies with Ultraviolet reflections. A super effective fly pattern for stillwaters fishing tyed with a brass ball suspended under a Bung.
You can also use it alone as a nymph or knitted with animations. The river version i styed on a Jig hook and using tungsten ball gives excellent results in rivers and not only on rainbow trout. Finally you can use it as a classic chenille to make streamer bodies by wrapping it around the hook shank.
The use of mops with nipples to tie your Mop flies quickly finds its limits in terms of choice of colours, money and waste of time. If you're looking for tying materials in several colours, you'll have to drive a long way to find these mops and spend a lot of money, with the near certainty that you won't find everything you're looking for.
And you won't find any with UV reflections that are equally effective on trout and grayling.
The Mop UV caterpillar allows you to tie 80 to 95 flies (1.90m in the pouch).
Diameter of the Mop Chenille 5 to 6 mm
