Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome stuff. Really like this body glass. Makes perfect slender segmented bodies and the translucent effect makes it look more like a real bug. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bodies! I bought a couple of colors of this Body Glass for tying Crazy Charlie bonefish flies. I'm no expert fly-tyer but I think this is an excellent material for segmented bodies. I'm happy with the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glass, all colors Buy it and use it. Easy to use. You can stretch it, tie different color materials under it to give your bug a different look. Very easy to work with and well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition I took a chance on this when it was first listed by Orvis. What a great addition to classic flies. I've added this to nymphs and saltwater patterns and received much success from the new recipes. I love the colors, and the translucence allows for the use of material beneath to be seen through the body glass.
