    Ya, those will catch fish. Mason, have you tried using sparser amounts of Angel Hair and circumnavigating the hook shank with it, ala a collar?

    Good stuff. The reason I ask is I have a couple noncommercial patterns (read as MY personal patterns) that incorporate a sparse collar of either pheasant rump dyed wine or yellow. Makes a big difference in the eyes of the fish. I can definitely see the benefit of creating a shroud with a flashy synthetic material to substitute the pheasant.

    ah ok. Yeah the angel hair is nice becasue its so thin and you can make it as sparse as possible.
