I went to Sportsman's Warehouse the other day and I was not able to find any Flash-back there. Is there a something that I can substitute for it?????

Thanks in advance,
Sam

Tons of it will be in Easter baskets soon, free, if you ask politely. Just don't take my candy!!
All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.

Would kitchen plastic wrap work also?

No.
