Catgut is a great fly tying material and flies tied with a catgut look very realistic.
Catgut is a natural material it is prepared from the natural fibre in the wall of the intestines of sheep and goats then they are twisting to the ribbons and joining them in wet condition plus giving the monofilament finish. In its dry state, it is a dry, stiff quite springy cord. The natural colour is a dirty cream with the odd glassy clear patch.
Catgut is a stiff material. In its dry state, it is a dry, stiff quite springy cord. The natural colour is a dirty cream with the odd glassy clear patch.
When well soaked in water its physical/structural state changes dramatically. It swells noticeably and goes ultra-limp and the entire cord takes on a milky translucence. 
Catgut is a stiff material. If you work with it you will should keep in warm water for 3-5 min. When the material goes translucent and soft you can use it. Don't put the entire material in water. Just leave in the water only the part that you are using.
Don't apply any coat on them after the end of tying !!! We do not recommend to make it. You destroy the catgut on your flies !!
