For flashback nymphs, you'd be better off with a spool of flat mylar tinsel.

Click the image to open in full size.

It'll give you the width of multiple strands of flashabou, and make tying them in go faster.

Luked: You have received great advice from the others, I also use those materials. To change things up a bit, I occasionally with use Thin Skin cut in thin strips, then once tied in I coat it with Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails.

+1 for pearl if I could only choose one.
Last time we tied flashbacks we had hot pink, and blue available. I liked both.

I picked up some of this stuff the other day and it is awesome, Singlebarbed is a genius. So much cheaper especially if you wait for weekend coupons.
Sulky Holoshimmer, holographic tinsel by another name | Singlebarbed
P.S. I also use Christmas tree tinsel like rip tide, cheap and effective.
