    Default Orange Chenille Blob

    This is my first attempt at doing a step by step but I thought you might like to have crack at tying this easy little Chenille style Blob, this has saved me from many a blank day through the winter, definately worth knocking up a couple, I have green & yellow versions too but good old orange seems to do the trick, anyway heres goes...........

    Hook – Kamasan B110 Shrimp / Buzzer Size 12
    Body – Fluo Orange Chenille
    Tail – White Fluo Twinkle
    Thread – Fluo Orange


    Step 1. Place hook in vice and tie on thread level with point of hook.


    Step 2. Tie in a few strands of White Fluo Twinkle for the tail


    Step 3. Tie in aprox 11cm of orange Chenille, strip the end down to the core first and make sure you tie in tight; Chenille has a tendency to slip, take your thread back to the eye.


    Step 4. Wind the Chenille around the hook up to the eye and then take it back on top of itself down to your tying in point then back again to the eye, build up your “round” shape thorax.
    Once you get back to the eye wrap the thread over to lock off the Chenille THEN take take a couple of wraps around the eye in front of the Chenille (gives a better finish) then snip off remainder of Chenille and whip finish head.


    Step 5. Trim tail to just past the bend of the hook, a couple of drops of Sally Hansons around the head and there you have it.

    its not how you tie your flies , its how you tease your flies

    I guess it's what you get used to, I am naturally left handed and tie left handed but actually fish right handed, although can fish left handed which is really handy at times!

    Hi guys

    Steve, your chenille blob looks very much like a globug (eggfly) which we use on the Tongariro in the winter. I have tied similar 'flies' with other colours and they work just as well as the traditional globugs. We even use the same hook pattern B110 in size 14, 12 & 10. They catch lots of fish when the winter runs are on. You just have to get them down to the fish, we fish them tied off the bend of a very heavy 'bomb'. B 200 with brass dumbell and copper wire or lead body! You can't be faint hearted when you cast these babies!! Hood up and shades on!!

    Cheers Noggin.
