W ... I believe Dron uses the paper fiber type medical tape, not the cloth tape.  The cloth is too thick for what he does with it.

That's what he told me about a year ago.  Go to his website... he has SBS for lots of incredible ties, almost always with unusual materials, and he uses paper surgical tape often.

Thanks for the help. White paper surgical tape (3M brand) located and purchased. Now, to create some wormies.

I think you would be alone, Jedi, if you didn't.  He's a favorite on this site ... both for innovative uses of non-standard materials and for excellent fish-able patterns.

That's the amazing thing... he makes these beautiful realistics, and he really fishes with them!  If I ever tied one as pretty as his, I'd be afraid to get it dirty.
