Great Synthetic Substitute
Reviewer: A viewer from Mansfield, TX US
These work great for tying buggers. When I tie them in, it takes a little time for me to get them oriented to make sure the hackles are swept back, but my 3D visualization has always been bad. I also haven't had any problems with bigger flies spiraling and winding up my line with this product.

I was worried about the toughness of this product, but it has proven to be quite strong. I caught several bass and had a couple of gar bite on a woolly bugger that I tied with this hackle last year and it looked no worse for the wear at the end of the day.

First off all, understand I am a beginner. Tried this on a soft hackle fly (size 12) and did not work well, possibly because of the relatively thick stem and lack of natural "curvature" (and hook size?). Real thing works better for me here. Tried it on a b**** creek nymph (size 10) and a wooly worm (size 14 curved nymph hook) and it worked well. Easy to tie in, wrap and tie off for those style flies. Will continue to use. Now - what will the fish think?
Nice but difficult at first
Reviewer: A viewer from Willow Grove, PA US
First attempt was total FAIL. My wife gave me a "You spent money, you better try again" look. After playing with it a while it ties up really nice. Learn to twist and turn to make it point where you want.
Parachute patterns may be impossible though!
Save your scraps and mistakes! The little fibers make great tails! I even tried dabbing a bit of Krazy Glue on it to see if that would melt it and it held up just fine.
