    I do it sometimes when craneflies are out. Take a big leggy bug and skate it across the top of the water. It's a fun way to fish.

    Great Idea sir. My first vise was a Regal Inex and I regret the day in a moment of weakness I sold it. Should have done something similar, or held on to it for my kids to learn on.

    I had someone tell me that combing out certain macrame cords will yield EP fibers or something that is a viable substitute anyway. I have never tied with EP fibers, just passing that along.
