From Wapsi Fly Inc. of Arkansas, USA comes THIN SKIN.
This is a .004" thick, stretchable and transparent sheet material that has a matte finish on one side and a shiny finish on the other.
It comes with a paper backing which makes it easy to cut the material into your chosen shape of all sizes.
Peel the skin from the paper backing and the Thin Skin can easily be tied into your dressing.
The printed patterns on Thin Skin can create an extremely realistic and/or dramatic look to the fly.
I find that because Thin Skin stretches and compresses when thread or wire is wrapped around it, it is an ideal material to use for shellbacks on patterns or for wing cases on nymphs of all types.
I am currently stocking the "fly speck" range of Thin Skin - the speckled pattern gives a superbly natural look as a shellback on shrimps and czech nymphs.
The sheets can be coloured with permanent markers to give you an unlimited range of colours
