Let me know if these are it? I believe they are. I even went back to look at his pics from that article. They have others on there site that are jig tail trailers and swim tail trailers. They even have kreetcher tail trailers that are like a crawdad. Have fun and let us know how they work if you buy them.

They are silicone fly tails. Bears den sell some along with Caddis Fly shop. Most are tied in at the hook bend. Lure parts online is also another source. Here is a link to the 3 types the sell.

Appreciate the info on skirting material; I'm sure that is what was used for the silicon legs. 

My problem was finding the source for the curled tails.

The only tails I've been able to find are way too short.  The tails looks like it is tied in at the head of the fly and extends one and a half times the length of the fly.

I have a like new TFO Profesional II, 7 1/2 ft, 4 piece, 3wt rod that was only used 2 or 3 times before I went to my 8 ft 3wt BVK again. The reel is a Wright and McGill Dragon Fly 3/4 reel, includes 75 yards of orange backing and  a Sientific Anglers Profesional mist green WF4F line. Blank warranty card from TFO, rod sock, reel case, box and paperwork for the reel. You just need to add your own leader and flies and go fishing. I paid 149.99 for the rod, 99.99 for the reel, 7.00 for the backing, 45.00 for the line. So please no low ball offers for like new set up. Asking $215 shipped to your door.

If it is the fly I am thinking of, they used skirting material. The use it with bass jigs and spinner baits for conventional tackle. Janns net craft, along with other tackle making supply stores sell this material.

Here is a video from you tube to show how they tie them on jigs. There are more videos on there also.

Thanks, Bob. Great report. Looks like you had a blast. We are headed to the Emerald Coast on Wednesday for 10 days. Spanish, Kings, Specks, Reds, Flounder, and the ubiquitous Ladyfish are on the menu. I have taken my family down there for the 4th of July for 30 consecutive years. What started with a 12, 9, 6, and infant is now 4 grown up families with 5 grand children going with us.
