Google 6x12, 6x14or 6x15 zip lock bags. even longer for saddles
Beware you may have to buy quantity. Like 100-1000
amazon has 6x15 for $13.50 for 100 bags
Most fishermen use the double haul to throw their casting mistakes further - Lefty Kreh

1000 at a time- https://www.uline.co...Reclosable-Bags (they also have other styles and materials)
you could probably contact one of the supply houses that sold you the skins and get a few from them. None of my skins came in zipped bags, just a sleeve like bag.

U-line has a good selection of open and zip-lock bags. (I like to put my skins in an open bag so they can slide in and out without damage. Then I put that bag in a zip-lock to keep out potential bugs.) Unfortunately, you have to buy by in quantity by the box. I haven't used 90% of what I bought and if you lived around the corner I would be happy to share. But it would be uneconomical to ship via Canada Post.
Maybe you could convince the owner of Green Caddis to supply these bags by the dozen.

That coat hanger thing is neat. Thanks for posting that.

I have bought them on e-bay per 100 ($20ish), I get 6 x 12 inch 6 mil bags, If I am selling or reselling material I find the thicker bag helps ?? quality?? Uline is good but you need to start @ 1000 good for 2 x 4 for carding flies or if you are packing wholesale for retail.

I've bought from McMaster-Carr, no problem. They are set up for retail sales through their catalog (WEB Site).
