Dronlee nice tie. Latex is an amazing material to tie with. I'm curious as to how thick the latex is that you tie with because you seem to get a more pronounced segmented body than I do.

Virtual Nymph have very nice Latex Nymph Skin... very durable and last longer in UV....

 

I'm using the latex strip cut off from my wife's kitchen glove.... it tie well but the only thing is you have to fish with it as soon as possible.... before the latex get harden.

I have your website in my bookmarks, love the stuff you tie. I am going to try your cicada x pattern over the next few days. Hopefully it looks at least somewhat like your does.

Plan on trying a few of your patterns as my skills progress.

Glad my blog can help and inspire people tying more flies... :)
