Yes JD it's thin skin, mottled olive on the green stonefly, gives a nice effect, haven't used it much before, it's good stuff.

What hook size/type are you using for both the stonefly and the cicada?

Dave Tiemco 200R #10 or #12 on the stoneflies, up one size for the green stonefly because it's larger. They are the ideal stonefly hook, tried them on the TMC2302 first but they didn't look quite right.

The Cicada is on a Kamasan B170 #12, a good strong hook with a wide gap

I put those stonflies away in a very safe place, too safe cos i can't find the buggers now!!
