Post Fly Tying Materials - ?

I am curious to what fly tying materials you have discovered as non-intended fly material...?

Here are some of mine:
  • Subway bags for wing material - cut a strip and stretch it out slowly to get the correct shape.
  • Dryer Lint - Black pug fur added (washed and blended with some other materials.
  • Broomstick plastic - black makes great legs.
  • Plastic packing beads in the glow in the dark indicators at Walmart make great salmon eggs. Color them with permanent marker and add a little cotton.
