My local fly shop doesn't carry and will not order Hareline Stretch Nymph Skin...natural(latex) color in 1/8" width. Surrounding shops do not carry it either. Does anyone have a local fly shop that carries this material? Virtual Nymph carries it, but I'm trying to avoid an internet shopping excursion...I like to deal in cash. If any one can help me with the purchase of a 2-3 packs, I will reimburse you and provide a stamped envelope. Also, I'll throw in a few flies for your trouble.

I know that I could use surgical gloves, but the patterns I'm targeting, the pre-cut width wraps and colors better.

PM me if anyone can help...Much appreciated.

Thanks.

Thom

After surfing through the J. Stockard site, they carry the item... Time to order.

"Every now and then, we tie a fly that is above our level of proficency. These ties seem to come out of nowhere, and serve to propel us to a new level in our tying. They're almost magical, and we can certainly feel this as we tie, and yet, we never really know when, or if, that feeling will strike us again."Flounder
