Default Bunny Whiskers

I was clipping a hair mask tonight to tie some Double Standards and started wondering about the whiskers. Plucked one and wrapped a hook to see if could make the tight turns. It wrapped well up to the thicker section before breaking, so I think it could be done if soaked for a while.

My question: Is their anyone tying with the whiskers? I think they at least would make some great tails.

Dave

I was tying crawfish patterns today. I wonder if the whiskers would make good antennae?
