Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin Skin Excellence! Whether creating a "Copper John" wing case or a #20 hook "Scud" shellback, Thin Skin provides the ease of use and exceptional colour and visual pattern / texture variety that helps create endless fly variations! Tying with Thin Skin is fun and productive and helps create realistic patterns that can even fool the best Fly Fisherman let alone a wary Rainbow Trout!
