Mylar and Lurex Bodies

Mylar can be obtained in sheet form as thin embossed gold or silver foil, or as a woven tube. The sheet form is more frequently used, although it is quite flimsy. Cut it into lengths, then prepare and tie it in like any flat tinsel (as already described). Woven Mylar tube is good for imitating the scales of small fishes, and few books seem to give instructions on its use; hence its inclusion here. It is a material that requires gentle handling to prevent the weave from unraveling too much.

Lurex is available in many colors, either in sheet form or, like flat tinsel, on reels. Use in the same way as Mylar.
