    I've found it works really well as a sub for bucktail on several types of streamers and it can be spun like wool for the heads on sculpin and other large profile flies. I haven't done much else with...

    As the water has been cooling here, I've just been steadily downsizing my clousers and still catching crappies and white bass. As I said above, I usually go to soft hackles for gills when it gets...
