Fish 'em quick!  Like you said, that rubber/elastic deteriorates quickly.

I've used  single strands of spinner bait skirts for some soft hackles I tied.  I've got a family christening to go to in mid-July.  The house is located on Upper Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks.  There's a dock to fish off.  My nephew brought his 3 year old a kid's fishing rod.  I figured why not tie some grubs up to put under his bobber instead of dealing with messy worms.  I'm still working on them, but I'll post some pictures when I'm done.  I was looking through one of the catalogs I get my spinner bait skirts and skirt layers from and they have a wide version of the skirt layers.  They're 0.06 inch, roughly 2 mm, wide. They should give more of the layered look that latex does.  I need some other materials that you can't find in fly fishing catalogs so I'm going to order some and give them a try.  Hopefully they'll catch Hank his first fish.
