Cocklett body tubing

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used this? Or seen it in person? This looks like the expandable wire harness stuff used in robotics which is about $2 for 10'.

Yes, looks identical to mesh wire loom. I saw Chris Krueger tying with it over the weekend.

mesh tubing has been around for many many years in the fly tying world.

 

jack gartside introduced us to "corsair" tubing in the late 80s - 90s (it was slightly different but it was a mesh tubing)

 

it seems it died out for a while and its being brought back as the next great thing in fly tying

 

it not a new as some tyers may think.
