Presumably you are looking for some laser/holographic reflective foil to add sparkle to your lures.
Surprisingly I've found a wealth of this stuff available in stickers for kids, and in sheets to cover their books.
I usually shape cut to fit a lure, then once I've stuck it on, give it a couple of coats of clear epoxy.
This is dynamite on metal slices, and I usually get transparent holographic film for these.
The most effective foil I found was off a packet of razor cartridge blades. It was a great and flashy green and silver background.
I simply soaked the pack in hot water, and peeled off the foil.
A little adhesive on the slice, and a couple of coats of clear nail polish, and it works better than before, the tailor love it.
Look around the supermarket, all this stuff is there waiting to be recycled.

Drop in and see your closest signwriter, they will have scaps laying around or old stock

Use these and the reflective tape is redundant, plus the flash never comes off.

Thanks for your e-mail Kev. I may have found what you want. Just waiting for confirmation - or otherwise - from our suplier in the US.
Will e-mail you when I have an answer.

Thanks to all the suggestions
Steve from Master Jig Builder has solved the mystery and sent a sample of the tape to us
Great work Steve and I'll here from Steve very soon to place an order with him

It took some hunting down Kev as you know, but we definately have the right tape type. I can now see why you wanted just this shape. It is serious in the reflection department.
More news shortly once I hear back from the US in terms of minimum lengths and cost.
