This is a material with some pedigree.
It has been sold as Scalebody, Flashbraid, Fishscale and various other names but they are all just one great material.
Glitterbody is a braided floss with the inclusion of lurex tinsel in the braid to create a colourful flashy and durable body material.
It can be used in lots of ways :
It can be sealed with a dab of varnish or flexigoo and tied in as a detached body - the black mosaic makes a superb buzzer.
It can be twisted and allowed to coil around itself to create a more substantial detached body - this makes great bodies for adult damsels and damsel nymphs.
It can be wound slim or thick as a body - the bottle colours make great terrestials and the metallic colours make great wets.
Each card holds 2 yards; enough for many flies.
