I like the colors combination on this one (a bit over-dressed for my own taste, but i bet it works beautifully in a current).

I don'0t know over there, but maybe this tip is helpfu: Still can get the "original" chenille, non synthetic, from upholstery chenille fabrics, just need to split the strands apart and you have some awesome natural chenille :-) I use one here which is an intermediate thickness between the normal chenille and the micro, really awesome for some flies.
