So these packages are basically the same as the HMH ones that I have that are clear tubes and I can cut to length. The only difference is that they are colored. I thought they might be different somehow since in the same package were 5 pieces of colored tubes and 5 pieces of clear tubes. I may have to bid on a package to give them a whirl. You are right the Chartreuse sticking out the front would give it an interesting glow. There is just way to much flytying stuff out there.
ps> did you ever get my private message about the stacking of deer hair to create the frog pattern?
