John, Contact me if you have any problems finding biots. I think I have almost every color available, and a package goes a long way.
Hi John....I have to be honest here. I have not used biots a whole lot and when I do they are usually left straight; such as on the prince nymph. With the use of the lighter and heated tweezers, it seems that they hold their set better with less of a chance to straighten out.
When you soak yours, does the shape continue to stay once it has been fished?
