This is a very versatile flat mylar synthetic tinsel made in the Czech Republic that is a must for every fly tier, it is great for tying midge bodies, butts, ribbing and heads. Body Quill is perfect for tying barred nymphs and dry fly bodies as a substitute for stripped peacock quill and will not snap as much either. It is a very effective body for micro nymphs and creating a light to dark effect on the body of the fly depending on the thread used for the under body. This product is tinted but also transparent and tying in two strands of contrasting colours and wrapping them next to each other gives an excellent effect. It also can be coated with Loon Hard Head Pearlescent to give a slight glitter effect.
