    Glow in the Dark chenille, man. Does anyone know of a fly shop locally that stocks this stuff? GHFS doesn't have it on their website that I could find, and I'm not sure anyone else (local) has a functioning online store. Trying to keep my monies in-state, naw'm sayin?

    That would be cool but had not dawned on me to look for it. The two local online fly shop stores I checked did not have it. Waters west has GITD flashabou but no chenielle. Pacific Fly Fishers was the other I checked.

    Might be worth a call to a shop.

    Yeah, it doesn't seem to be a common item, but I think it would make some neat flies. I'll get on the horn here and make some calls. Thanks for looking!

    Gear shops sell glow in the dark yarn. I've used in place of chenille for bodies on Woolley Buggers etc.

    That is an option I will definitely consider, thanks Stonefish!

    Riffing on Jeff's idea, just make a quick chenille with a dubbing loop and GITD whatever. (Flashabou, yarn, etc.)

    That idea ain't half bad either! I need to learn to think outside of the box.
