    Having used other mylar tube which is just silver in colour this stuff is much better and gives a fishy look to the body, when finished with UV resin it really brings out the colours. For different colour effects you can also use it over the top of different coloured fibres, black being my favourite.

    It’s body tube. It’s just to make bodies right? Wrong! Because it’s hollow I often use it to add rattles to my flies that are tied with loose fibres too. Just tie in your tail section and then opposite the barb, tie in the body tube so it extends over the eye of the hook. Cut the tube a 2mm or so in front of the eye, drop in a glass rattle or a few glass beads and carefully push it back until you have a cone shape. Tie it off a 5-10mm behind the eye and you now have a rattled body. The cone is also a very good support for your thinking bred making the creation of a nice body shape easy. I love this stuff for that benefit alone. Of course you could just use it to make amazingly holographic bodies too…
