Orvis Mylar® Tinsel

The shiny reflection of this fly tying material attracts fish faster.


Won't tarnish, even in salt water, and stretches slightly when you wind, so it's easy to get a smooth, flat body. Gold on one side, silver on the other. Sizes small (hook sizes 16-18), medium (hook size 14), large (hook size 12). Ten yards per spool.

    A little small - 4/7/2014

    There is nothing wrong with the product itself, but make sure of your sizing before you order. The site lists it as small 16-18. It is actually extra small 16-18. Maybe that is what you want, but if I had seen it in person I absolutely would have ordered a larger size. This stuff is really really small.

    Mylar Tinsel - Silver - 12/30/2012
    By: from Northern Georgia

    Was surprised that a good quality tinsel like this is available in both different sizes and colors. I purchased the size 14 , medium, silver. My main criteria when judging tying tinsel is it's shine and strength. Obviously shine is important but there is nothing more frustrating than good looking tinsel that continually breaks when it's being tied. This tinsel doesn't, it's awesome. Thanks for another Orvis good quality product!

    Good and stiff - 9/10/2012

    This tinsel is a bit stiffer than others so it can be a problem if you need to wrap it around the hook width wise but works well to wrap length wise.
