Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

Hoping somebody can help me out on this one, I'm starting to mix my own dubbing, I've taken notice that some dubbing have a little very very fine tinsel mixed in, I have saw it in gold, silver, copper, green and what I would call rainbow colors. If I had to guess I would say its maybe about 1/100 of an inch wide. My question is what is the name of it and where can I buy it at ?

I've used Antron clipped short- maybe 1/8" lengths- and mixed with bunny dubbing, this gives the subtle 'shine' you may be referring to. Good for nymph abdomen and thorax use, adds some accent to these areas.

Thanks Matt I checked it out but that's not it but you did give me a hint so I followed it and I'm 99% sure its called Wapsi Prism Dubbing from what I can see from a pic of it I'm going to order a bag and see if its or not thanks again.
