    Great for wing backs on nymphs - 3/22/2013

    Hairs Ear Nymphs, Copper Johns, and other patterns that normally call for a wing case will benefit from this material. You can pick from a myriad of colors and patterns to suit the fly you are tying. It stretches well and adds depth to your fly that mimics a real wing case on a mayfly. Use it by itself, or add a dollop of epoxy over the top for even more depth and appeal.
