  1. Question Translucent Body Material


    I'm looking for a translucent body material similar to "Stretch Body" (available in various colors)... Basically I would like to be able to dub an under body and then wind this body material over it for a stonefly nymph I am trying to tie up...

    Also, if anyone out there knows where I can find "Stretch Body" online that too, would be helpful... so far I've only been able to find it on European web sites...

    Thank you,

    First I'd suggest checking at your local fly shop for :
    Hareline Dubbing - Nymph Stretch Skin Natural Latex.

    I use this product to tie up some awesome "grub" like
    flies. When you tie it in, tie it securely, then stretch
    it tight & it will become semi transparent. With some
    of my flies using this material I will actually color the
    finished fly with a permanent marker for different color
    variations & then seal it with head cement.

    If your shop does not carry it try checking the web for
    sites that may have that brand. It works for me.

    Seth, take a look at your local craft stores in the beading area of the shop. My local shop carries an elastic cord for making bracelets. It comes in various colors and sizes; I have tied some small stones with black 0.05mm size and they look good. I also played around with some od the clear cord over various colored thread bodies, they look very nice.
