Re: Pheasant Tail Fiber Substitute?
Boy, I don't even put 'legs' on some of my most recent ones. I'm in for Fluoro Fibre though - looks awesome under UV, which fish can see. Tough stuff for as fine as it is too.
It's nice to keep materials to a minimum, but pheasant tail isn't the toughest stuff in the world- try a synthetic. However, you can try the super fine centipede legs as well from Montana Fly. Anybody ever try Ultra Hair?
Now that I think about it, a pinch of rabbit hair, snipped off the skin, might work too. Just don't know how long that would hold up.
More importantly, SET THE HOOK!
I still say he married me because he took me ice fishing and I still wanted to go fishing with him again!
