Anyone ever use this stuff?

I have a variety of colors, but have rarely used it.
To me it's awefully wooly and hard to work onto the thread.

Any tips/advise/patterns using it, please share.

I've found exactly that...it's tough to get tight on the thread. I will use it for big weighted stonefly nymphs when I want that wide, wooly body. Other than that, it primarily sits in it's drawer.

Matt,
Try using it in a dubbing loop. Some synthetics are just better tied this way..

I don't have a dubbing twister, unless you are willing to cut me a deal on one!

I noticed a lot of the colors are labeled like, damsel green. So, is this dubbing good for the bushey flies.

Also, Bob do you use it, if so could you post a picture?
