Jim, I bought some mylar wrapping "paper" to wrap gifts this year. The leftovers should make ideal reflective material for crease flies. The colored side of the paper is blue, green and purple, and portions of the ink can be removed with tape to reveal the bright silver material underneath. The back side is all silver colored. I tied a juvie pogie fly using a piece of similar material (wrapper from a Power Bar) inside of a body made from EZ Body tubing. I haven't tested it yet but it looks very realistic.
