Edge Brite, AKA Laser Wrap, is a thin flexible body materials that is used for Lantern-style flies. Cut it into thin strips and wrap it over the top of flat silver tinsel for a great glowing fly. We use this in our Sockeye Lantern.
Tying Tip: First tie in a silver mylar under body. As you wrap the Edge Brite forward make sure each wrap slightly rides up on the previous wrap so the edges show and glow.
