TUers come up with an amazing variety of foil solutions, from silver leaf to aluminum HVAC tape, to hologram transfers, to Mylar, to artist's foil designed for stained glass art. I've tried most of them and for me, Venture Brite-Bak artist's foil has been the best and the easiest to use. Here's one source for it - Mosaic Accessories by Venture at Sunshine Glass
Brite-Bak is more reflective than HVAC foil and it's much thinner, so easier to hide the margins where the tape ends and the paint begins. Since it's tape, you don't need to glue it on the lure - just peel and stick.

Check out the colored foils from Reynolds. Come in regular 8/12x11 size sheets, lots of good colors (chart, red, orange).
