I recently applied the non-toxic softex stuff you gave me over braided bodies for silverside patterns (thick version). It worked fine, although it seemed a touch cloudier than the real softex. Once in the water there was no difference.

But when I sniffed it from the paper bag I didn't lose consciousness! ;-) Seriously, the idea of NOT breathing the toluene was comforting. I appreciate having it now that I am tying those patterns.

I'll bring some of these out for coho soon!
