I think maybe I am finally learning how to do this. However I am still not confident in how to finish them best. It's harder than I first thought for several reasons I will not go into now.

Soon I will try to have one of each color tied to take a pic of.

Black head chartreuse skirt body looks like a winner Skip. Probably just do a neat thread wrap or a hackle neck collar on them.

You can't tie this stuff like any other material. It's different that any other material. You can't even use head cement. So think again on hackle collars and the like. I will never do a thread neck one either I don't think. If it were to come down to that I would just not use it. Anyway why would you want to hide all these beautiful colors behind a feather like hackle? Chenille and floss are made for that and this is not.

Ship this is not one of the things that can be used like other material and may be more of a pain in the rear than I want. However I do love the florescent colors that come out and you can't really see all from a pic.

How did you get / tie / cement it on the hook? It is pretty but is it practicle except for personal use? What is that material made of?
