I like to wrap the shank with Silver Braid all the way to the bend, ala Bob Pop.; this simulates the "Belly Sack" of many small bait fish.
The Polar Fibre Looks Great! I've done Most of mine with Super-Hair, but I've also done Buck-tail & some Bunney Strips.
BTW: ALL of my epoxies from last season have turned cloudy -- like Milk. I guess I should think about going to 20 minute (they claim it stays clear longer) or Just tie epoxies in small batches as I need them!
