    What ever you do never confuse Fishing With catching Fish !!!!

    But your reasoning has a fatal flaw; it overlooks the fact that to comprehend it requires that one rub a few brain cells against each other. The heat thus generated produces the light that illuminates the fact, but alas, not everybody has the resource required to fuel the process --SG

    Yes there are plenty of materials available for the job however, you will be stacking and not spinning and or split thread or double loop to achieve a thick head.Also search for Kinky Muddler, I think what you want in the end is very similar.

    Hi Korrie, I must say I like the use of the Fritz Fibre. I sukkel my moer off using Polar Fibre.

    Think I’ll give your recipe a try

    I prefer the Fritz Fibre, to the Polar Fibre.

    The Fritz Fibre is a softer, smoother material. When spinning, wrapping around the hook shank, for me, it works better than the Polar fibre.The Polar Fibre feels like raw cotton or almost has a cotton appearance.
    What I like about the Fritz Fibre, is the natural shine it has.
