Mono would probably work but is less supple (soft) than V-Rib, Bodyglass and other similar materials marketed under different names which are also clear vinyl-like plastic... Very stretchy and supple making it easy to wrap, cut, manipulate. Also, the cross-section is not symmetrical (round) the kind I use has a "D" shaped cross-section so depending how you wrap can change the appearance.

You should have no problem finding this stuff in a local shop or catalog... Private message me if you are still stuck. Typically comes in clear, olive, amber, brown, black and other natural colors. Great for many different patterns including nymphs, crustaceans, and streamers. I use it a lot.
I once knew a drug addict... He told me I have a fishing problem!
