The material in tea bags is an excellent winging material, especially for mayflies. It is nearly indestructible to water, takes color well with permanent markers (Pantone pens work best), and if they have already been steeped, they have a complete dye job. Use a marker to add veins and BOOM.....mayfly wings galore!!!

Do you have any photos of samples tied this way? Sounds intriguing.
