Re: Snow shoe vs. Deer/Elk
It all depends on the water you cast them in. Elk will float like a cork in a riffle compared to deer hair, snow shoe floats pretty well in faster stuff but I like it better on slower streams or big flat pools and glides. I don't stack it (show shoe), never tried either, I just try to get a fair amount of guard hairs and fluff. Save the underfur for dubbing!
