So, it's not exactly my genius idea, but I'll share it anyway. Thanks to the fine folks from the Fly Chuckers fly club of St. Paul, MN to pointing this one out to me: Offray Soda Pop wire edge ribbon. All you need to do is pull the wire out from each edge of the ribbon and you the makings for a perfect baitfish body. If you want, you can separate each individual strand of flash and you have an endless supply of tinsel, much like the Kreinik or Sulky Holoshimmer. At $2.97 for nine feet of ribbon, there's plenty to go around before needing to re-stock.
Excuse me, I've got a few delicious bass I need to go tease with some shiny, sparkly goodness. Peace out.
