Because its the greatest. And it gives that dark, iridescent effect that's seen on the backs of many baitfish. But basically because it's the greatest. Definitely my favorite tying material.

Why would you want a synthetic herl, more plastic in our rivers.

Peacock Herl and Flashabou, are both great materials that can add a little zing to your ties. I have to agree that Herl is number one though, don't leave home without it. Heck, you can catch fish with a hook wrapped in peacock herl and nothing else - especially when midges are hatching.
