Real vs Faux Bucktail Comparison
McFlyLures posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchThis video is a bit different, its more of a comparison between two materials. The synthetic bucktail, and real bucktail. From my opinion, I think they both have unique properties and differences, so much so that I really think the should be different named materials all together. Faux bucktail is somewhat misleading as its not exactly the same as the real stuff. In some ways its better, and in some ways its worse. For certain applications it could be better, and for certain applications it could be worse. So thats my conclusion. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 in size 2 Eyes: Lead Painted Dumbell Eyes in large and red Thread: Danville 210 Flat Waxed in White Material: Real and Faux Bucktail in white/olive Head Cement: Solarez "Bone Dry"
