This woven tubing creates realistic minnow bodies in a range of colors and sizes. It is made from woven pearl and metallic mylar. Simply remove the core and slide the hollow tubing over the eye of the hook and secure it at the back and front with thread. Use a marker to add realistic elements to minnows like gills, lateral lines and parr marks. It lays flat and is also highly effective when wrapped around the hook shank as a body or used as a wing case on nymph patterns.
