This is a flashy woven braid that is the modern way of making tinsel bodies. Easy to use! 1 to 1.5mm dia. Just wind around the hook shank ensuring that each winding butts against the previous one. There is no need to slightly overlap each winding as with flat tinsel. Also the braid is much stronger, therefore it does not need to be reinforced with fine wire. Anyone can now tie neat and flashy tinsel type bodies on streamers or Matukas. Maxibraid is also useful for BMS style flies for ribbing. It is ideally suited for making Crazy Charlies for Bonefish and other saltwater species.
