Default Re: Calf tail fouled on hook?

Sorry - I'm kind of thick with some of this stuff --

Are you saying that the problem of hook fouling is mostly related to using material that is too "wispy" or is it a function of wing/tail length versus hook length?

Should I use wings/tails that extend quite a bit further than the hook bend? OR should I use longer 3-4x streamer hooks that are more similar in length to the wing?

Thanks -- this all helps. I've never had this happen before until I started using the calf tail
