By the way, there are some CAT guts in different colors. I have seen it in light Blue and light Yellow. I would search medical supplies online.
Troutline has it in different colors. See above.
I am not looking for it.

The British military used to issue condoms that were very heavy duty, they’re just latex after all which I’ve used to tie in the past. They lasted a long time. Latex is easily coloured with a waterproof marker pen. Makes for a nice fly.
As a footnote during wwII Winston Churchill ordered large condoms to be dropped amongst the Japanese troops, he ordered thems to be marked” size small”
Love both fly fishing and fly tying, been doing it for a while
But not much good at either
