Frank I went out and bought some of this after I read one of your posts about it. It is a great product.

Hi rmooney,

A lot of places that sell fly tying materials sells Hydrostop. If they have Loon products they can get it for you. Here is a link to Loon Industries and their "locate a dealer" map. Just click on your state and Loon dealers will be listed.

Hi rmooney,

Why don't you try something like the tail you have on this fly?

Frank

This is why I don't like photobucket photos.

thanks for the info frank. i was going to try using chenille for a tail, but i just dont think that would hold up too well, especially against pike :S i was just at gander mountain in onalaska, WI and theyve never heard of it! ill probably end up ordering it online, because that stuff seems really cool.

one thing i would like to add about the bunny stripps on the back...when they take up water they become heavy. Make sure that you dont over do it with the amount u add to the back or u risk making it too heavy for your rod. Also it helps casting in a wind since the wet hair flys like a rock. As long as they float yes they will work very well.
