That's what they call "oval tinsel" size "Fine" it's actually Mylar wrapped around string.

 

Thanks retro, what do you fish with them? And what colors do you like? I'm thinking I will use them for trout and salmon but pike for sure.

 

Next I'm getting into some muddlers. Hope they don't look too elementary next to Scotts

 Mainly Trout mate ...depends on the sizes , some people prefer the thicker bodies on these flies but I personally go slightly thinner 

Muddlers are good too smile.png

Colours for me are olive tones , black and red , All red with gold wire, CDL in medium pardo  and red body and all black with gold or red wire....the world of colour is your oyster lol

Little bend back size 10, I think these should work well for trout.
