These are a few "non-intended fly materials" that I use, although I don't think that I can claim that I discovered them.

  • Foam ear plugs for a popper body.
  • Used leather golf gloves for leeches, stonefly bodies, wingcases, etc.
  • False eyelashes for dry fly tails.
  • Medical rubber gloves for "latex" strips.
  • Peacock herl from a feather store that supplies feathers for dance costumes.
  • Bungie cord core rubber for legs on bass bugs.
  • Tea bags for dry fly winging material.
