Pre-cut flexible material saves time at the tying bench. Creates a perfect translucent shell every time. Makes realistic wing cases, too. Colors: Light Olive, Tan (not shown), Clear (not shown). Sizes:
I may have gotten a bad batch from my local Cabelas, but this material disintegrated the moment I pulled it out of the package. The first strand broke into multiple pieces before it even touched a hook. Even a very loose thread wrap (for placement) sliced through it like butter. When I finally got one piece to tie down without breaking, after dubbing the hook, when I went to fold it over the top of the hook shank, it fell apart. I wish I had known this before leaving the store, or I would have checked other packages to be sure.
this is a good back material that I use for tying Czech style nymphs (caddis larva) and scud patterns. The only thing wrong is it doesn't have a long shelf life. When it gets old it starts to break easily and wire ribbing cuts through it.
