So my camera has been a trooper until this weekend. It went for a thorough swim and now its done. I give it props for lasting as long as it did with as many baths it took. So now you deal with the camera from my phone!

I think it's just the Orvis version of Larva Lace, or nymph rib. Kind of a vinyl, semi-stretchy, ribbing material.
