Very nice hopper Chugbug, and thanks for using & posting Aileen's Flexible Stretchable.

I have used Aileen’s Fabric Fusion but didn’t know about the Flexible Stretchable.

It's great stuff. Clear rubbery finish. Tried it after @salmobytes recommended it.

I do have some pre-cut wings out of some kind of material like that. I have used them some but I can't tell you what they are. There is no label. Lately I've been cutting my own out of teal flank feathers. All good stuff though. Nice fly DR.

I do live in San Antonio yes.  It’s a 2.5 hour drive to the coast.  But I sell flies also, and these were sold to someone in Florida.
