  1. Hi All, 1st time post here. I have been tying flies and making jigs for quite sometimes. I fished with flies, but not with a fly rod. I usually target rockfish out of Pillar Point Harbor and use the drop shot method for fishing it. I was fascinated with the dragon tail fly movement and order some squirmel toy to tie some. It did not survive 2 fish and the tail got destroyed. In my search for a replacement, I came across these chenille yarn at Walmart https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-31-7-Yd-Soft-Chunky-Chenille-Yarn-Silver/871443849. I yanked on the fuzzy fibers and the yarn did not undo itself. It's very durable. My flies are still intact after my last trip, no sign of tear. The only down side of this is that I have to trim the yarn to the shape I want. Not a bad trade off. Durable and cheap. I thought I share my findings.
