I bought some white, olive and chartruese a couple of months ago, specifically with "real eels" in mind. Scott at the Bears Den found it out west somewhere, a Utah ff show I believe. I've been meaning to mention the stuff. Scott showed me some bunker and herring patterns tied with it - pretty impressive. The white is a real brilliant white so I don't know about using it for the real eel - I tend to like something a bit more suble like the Superhair polar bear.
