    • Hi Daniport,
      sorry for my late reply – I miss your comment.
      You can find Chamois leather  in car shops. It ‘s used for window cleaning


  2. I love the Chamois Caddis! Easy to tie and very effective.
    I have also tied it using lead wire, peacock hurl and using artificial sinew. You can get a roll of artificial sinew at hobby and craft stores for a couple of bucks.
