Chewee Worm - Let's face it, worm patterns can work well. Extremely well. Here is another pattern to add to the worm pile. It looks good and is easy to tie. Good in red or worm brown. - fly fishing video channel - Global FlyFisher

What did you coat the fly with? I've been emailing with another tyer and the same thing's happening to me, even without a coating. It seems the stuff 'breaks down' after awhile and comes undone. I know the package sez something like "may not be compatible with certain adhesives." I tried Liquid Fusion on one and have to check it. I would recommend NOT using Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails, it breaks the stuff down. It's too bad if this stuff doesn't hold up, it makes the flies look awesome. There must be an adhesive that coats it and doesn't break it down.

I tied this fly & the next morning the Chewee skin disintegrated, what did I do wrong?
