Got these on sale in all the colors to make tie various flies over the winter. Really like it in all the mottled colors to add some variation. The black seems to rub off on the underside pretty easy, so have to use some care. When cut right it lays nicely with a slight wrap. A little epoxy or UV on top and is perfect.
Thin Skin has a wide variety of uses due to the fact that you can cut it into any shape and size that you want. The different colors and pattern variations open up a huge number of uses and options and at the price you could really get a large variety of patterns for a good price. Its somewhat stretchy but firm enough that its difficult to over stretch the material and it makes for absolutely excellent scud backs and wing casings. Sometimes I wish I could order them pre-cut to size because I mostly only use them in 1 size and it can be a bit of a pain to cut them consistently. That's about my only down side to them but if you get yourself a cheap paper cutter for around $5 or $10 then that mostly eliminates human error in cutting them for size. Its my go-to for scuds and looks just as good as a wing casing or a body material if cut to size.
There are a lot of similar products out there but for the cost and color selection I don't think you can beat thin skin. Works great for wing cases and the sheet will last you for a lot of flies.
