A small strip of foam tied up like a pot roast works too. Not too durable though.

I usually just fish big bushy hare's ear larva style flies when they are catchin the stockers on meal worms.

i tyed some using latex , then colored it with a waterproof marker and ribed it with a shade darker thread , but like tom said a rubber band , its a lot quicker

One I like is an off-white synthetic craft yarn wrapped up and tied off with a black thread head. The synthetic yarn is translucent when wet, so the color can be modified by a thread underbody. White, yellow, and orange underbodies give the wet fly different looks.
