    Hareline Select Craft Fur.

    Interesting stuff. Has an under fur just like real fur does. No flare when you tighten down. I been practicing some of my skill sets. Like Hollow Wrapping, where you bind the materials backwards, then reverse and align and make a damn wrap to collapse them back, instead of wrapping the material itself. This creates the illusion of density, but with just a pinch of material. Moves nicely in the water because it is sparse. The pictures look horrible compared to jig-in-hand viewing.

    Jig on bottom has a fox hair chin. Easy to add a dash of color in this fashion, too. Been practicing adding dubbing there. That is why you don’t see those examples. LOL. Anyways it is fun discovering new materials and new techniques.

    I dip them into water and see how they move, and upon extraction see what they will look like whilst being drug behind the boat. I like the profile being a more rounded blob, rather than the triangle of a normal bucktail. The material collapses leaving a beer belly effect. Like a nice fat and juicy shad.

    The only issue is that I am not really able to form jigs like these when they are underspins. I have to keep those hairs away from the whirling dervish, so they cannot bulge downwards.

    Considering doing some hybrids- Manimal……half man- half animal. I mean half tied fibers -half plastic baits. Might get some odd looks from that.

    The sprinkles look sparse, because they are. Clear with Silver Holographic Sprinkles, only Protect got cheap on me. I shook it and shook it and still the glitter was sparse. So now I need to buy some glitter and do it myself. I’ll add to my UV and Clear and try to obtain some sparkle after all.

    Glitter is certainly sparse.

    The idea of glitter is probably a bad one anyways.
