    Buy it and use it. Easy to use. You can stretch it, tie different color materials under it to give your bug a different look. Very easy to work with and well worth it.

    I took a chance on this when it was first listed by Orvis. What a great addition to classic flies. I've added this to nymphs and saltwater patterns and received much success from the new recipes. I love the colors, and the translucence allows for the use of material beneath to be seen through the body glass.

    Body glass is great for some small nymphs I tie for the Midwestern streams I fish.

    This is a great product. Easily stretched and wrapped, with great transparency. This particular color is more red than amber though.

    Translucent midge bodies - 3/22/2013

    I recently discovered this at my local Orvis store and quite frankly I have been having fun with it ever since. The picture depicts a salt water pattern, but using this for the body material on even the tiniest midges have changes how I tie. Instead of some of the other tubing products out there, this one is a micro "D" rib that obviously lays flat because of the "D" but also stretches well and adds so much depth to my flies. I have tried thread underneath. I have tried tinsel and even wire. Your fly will look like it was dipped in glass and actually look translucent, just like real midges and larva. I wish I had discovered this stuff sooner.
