Vinyl Rib is a versatile and general-purpose material that can be used as ribbing or as bodies on saltwater flies like crazy Charlie’s and clousers style flies. In freshwater, it is often used to create lava or worm bodies. Although it is coloured, it is also translucent, allowing another colour to show through the ribbing. A favourite way to Vinyl Rib is to lay down a base of Mylar and rib over the top.
