Made my own fly ribbing Dollar store style

Recommended Posts

Finding ribbing and even tubing around here is next to none and driving down to Sails just for that is not worth it right now. Found this kids craft tube stuff . Figured I would see if it would work . It is a bit on the stiff side, but I found by pulling it through your fingers, creating heat friction, it softened up and stretched nice and worked great for soft tube or ribbing . Now if I could find it in different colors .

Ah you pulled that tubing over the Simcoe bugs?  That would really negate having to dip them in nail polish or similar, great idea.
