Enjoyed reading the article. I think Craft Fur may be an over looked fly tying material with most seasoned tiers. I like to use it with streamers, mixed with other materials. Got a bunch of a while back really cheap and use it for allot of different applications. Also makes a pretty good dubbing mix. It is more durable then some feathers that's for sure I always enjoy experimenting with different materials when tying. One of the many joys of the art fly tying.
