Virtual Nymph is the original, and still the best. I have used every "rip off" available, and still highly prefer VN skin. It has the perfect width, translucency, and stretch for my needs.
easy to use

really enjoyed tying with this product....by stretching the nymph skin, you can make a tight body. you can akso cut the product lengthwise to produce thinner body segments. do be aware that the material floats, so for non emerger patters, some weight my be required

I really like this material. I've bought several colors to tie several patterns. Takes coloring from markers for additional colors.
