Semperfli Perfect Chadwicks 477 Substitute

This '477' has been developed by Semperfli to replicate as close as possible to the classic Sawyer Bug tying wool as originally used by Frank Sawyer.  It comes as a 3 ply making tying of the nice thick Sawyer Killer Bug and the Utah Killer bug a doddle. However to perfectly replicate the original Killer Bug simply split the 477 Substitute from 3 ply to one and it matches even the diameter of the original 477.

You are buying Semperfli Chadwick's 477 Substitute not the Original Chadwicks 477 shown on any photos on this page - they are purely for illustration to show you how close to the  colour match is. The original card of Chadwick's 477 here is worth a small fortune and locked in a safe!

Get some Chadwicks Substitute yarn! Killer bug is super easy to tie, and trout love them.

Great substitute.

This "substitute" for the original Chadwick's 477 is better than I anticipated. I'm guessing the flies tied with it will prove to be as effective as the originals were.

Couldn't say if it was really 477 or closer to 476... Don't think it will matter too much, it's grey and hairy like bugs.

Quick service and little free gifts, great!

Having used The Chadwicks 477 this is a very close match, the best I've used.
Three strands make up the thread which I strip back to individual strands that work a treat for killer bugs. Highly recommended.
