Dry Fly Polyyarn
Polyyarn has been nicknamed the 'floating yarn'. It is a fibrous, beautifully buggy, and easy to use fly tying material. A must have for any serious fly tyer!
It is a bonded form of polyyarn which is, essentially, dubbing on a rope. Its tight fibrous bonding makes it ideal on dry flies as it will float naturally with a fibrous design that traps air to help your fly float.
It is durable, and the colour choices (including the single colour or mottled options) ensure there's many natural representations in this polyyarn range. It's easy to taper to a point by simply heating. The ‘dubbing on a rope’ range makes tying easy for beginners and experienced tyers alike.
With a very specific gravity / density of 0.91g/cm3, polypropylene yarn is lighter than water, which means that it floats, making it ideal for dry flies.
Many companies claim to use polypropylene yarn, however a simple test you can do at home to check if it is genuine polypropylene yarn is to cut a 1 inch / 25mm strip, scrunch it up in your fingers and drop it into a glass of water. If it is genuine polypropylene yarn then it should dip below the surface and then return to the surface. Leave it for a day and it should still be floating!
Semperfli makes two versions of polyyarn - the original Semperfli Polyyarn that comes on cards and is ideal for parachute posts and dubbing wings, and Dry Fly Polyyarn Caddis Collection, which is a spool based product intended for bodies of flies or to create detached bodies.
