    Large UV Polar Chenille

    Just Check out this large UV Polar Chenille, this is one of the very best chenille’s available that’s if you want to CATCH FISH, Nige can even tell you why it works!! Nige as tied flies from a size 10 streamer hook for early season sinking line work to a size 14 wet fly hook using the same size of chenille!! Here’s the reason it works, movement and flash!!! On smaller sizes he fibres will lay back over the marabou tail but this will just add to the movement and flash!!!! Those UV strands will drive trout crazy especially on a floating  being pulled back through the waves!! Nige Used the size 14’s on a 5 weight and talk about excitement and that BUZZ as you see a bar of silver crashing through the tops of the waves!! Krystal hackle works in the same type of way as the Polar chenille, again a stunning modern chenille and perfect for producing 2 tone bodies!! Ultra chenille is the very best of the traditional chenille’s and forms very dense bodies to your flies. Glo-Brite Chenille as been around for years and is still one of the brightest chenille’s available. Take a look at the full range of Chenille’s from Fly Box and Hareline now.

    Why choose Lakeland Fly-Tying?

    Lakeland Fly-Tying, high quality fly tying tools, accessories and materials. The largest stockist of Whiting Farms in Europe.

    Lakeland Fly-Tying began trading in January 2000 and over the last 13 years we have strived to become the modern, efficient online and mail-order business we pride ourselves on being today. Over the years we have developed a reputation amongst our many valued customers for carefully selecting and stocking high quality products and presenting them at the right price. As we have grown, we have invested a great deal in improving our ability to serve our customers better - introducing sophisticated stock management and order processing systems to ensure your experience of shopping with us is both fast and efficient. This allows us to ensure that all orders received before 1.00pm (GMT) will be winging their way to you that very same day.

    Success has not been easy. The last 13 years must have been one of the most testing periods in history for a fledgling business. Outbreaks of the foot and mouth disease in 2001 destroyed our second year of business. This was followed by avian flu and then what seemed like years of severe weather throughout the Summer. It destroyed many of the Game Fairs we attended and, to some degree, depended on not just to sell but to say a fond "hello" to our faithful supporters. Just when you think things can't get much worse we enter the worst recession for a generation. Throughout this period Lakeland has developed and adapted to become a much stronger and driven business; one with a clear and strong business plan that is determined to be here for you for many years to come.

    Through hard work and a determination, Lakeland have developed incredibly strong relationships with the world's biggest suppliers and with the support of companies like Whiting FarmsRenzettiHMHDyna-King,WapsiPartridge and Veniards we now stock extensive product ranges from your favourite and most trusted brands. As the economy improves, Lakeland will continue to develop the product ranges so you can enjoy the many new items arriving each and every month. Lakeland's aim over the next few years is to increase product availability and offer our customers an even faster and even more efficient purchasing system with a web site that is both a pleasure to use and browse.

    … and don't forget, if you need advice on our service, our products or even how to make the best use of the things that you buy, give Lakeland a call. We're here to help.
