I WILL ALWAYS HAVE THIS STUFF on my tying bench! To my way of thinking there is no need for Poultry feathers any more. I ONLY tie Underwater flies. Wonderfull stuff is all I can say/type! Wish they had more colors in the large size. I only use the large size. Later, Jay
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.
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.
Can't really use this on the smaller flies, but for streamers and buggers it is fine. You do have to learn how to "twist" it to get it to lay how you want. I even tried it on some Amy's Ants and it work good there as well. I like how you can vary the lengths of hackle and gives it some extra shine.
