Works fine, poor design/labeling
Reviewer: A viewer from Aspen, CO US
I ordered Hareline's Pearlescent Flat Tinsel (narrow), but when it arrived i didn't even know what it was becasue the product was not labeled anywhere on the spool. The other thing I don't like is the fact that you have to use a rubber band to stop the tinsel from unraveling off the spool rather than a built in method directly on the spool.
Try it, you'll like it

If you've never tried this for a shell case on a nymph all I can say is, you're missing out. The light catching properties of the pearlescent material are incredible. It presents a noticeable flash while at the same time complementing, and not over-powering the other colors on your fly. As noted, this is THE "go to" material for your Ray Charles flies. I use the narrow style for Skinny Nelsons and Flashback Quills. I also tie a length on either side of my bucktail for extra sparkle on white bass and wiper streamers. A must have on my fly bench.
