I've been looking without much success for sheets of holographic Mylar, particularly the kind with designs on both sides. All I've been able to come up with is the adhesive-backed type, which I can't use. I actually need it for making flash on offshore saltwater flies, but I was hoping that maybe you guys might have spotted some at your foil sources. I know the stuff exists, because I still have a few sheets that I bought at some long-forgotten craft shop, but of course, I threw the label away at some point, so even the manufacturer is a mystery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Flashabou or mylar flash wont work? both those are common buys at any fly tying place. Otherwise like gordon said i get some sheets at the dollar store and its sold as gift wrap. its thin and same color on both sides with no adhesive.
