Well, I bought a lot of it for some really big musky/pike flies. The stuff is awesome for reverse tying and building up a big profile without adding a ton of material.
The stuff is tantalizing in the water as well.
We might have to get out and fish some local waters soon since you are so close! Not a whole lot brookfield illinoisans who fly fish!
