Did you know.....

Beads, wire, and real rabbit fur also.  A few feathers, paint, craft foam, and markers.  Flash stuff, chenille, and other assorted things.  Nice storage boxes for hooks and beads too.

Got any other cool ideas ?

                I was just there yesterday getting some two-part clear coat for finishing some wooden baits. I have discovered the wood lathe. Stand by for more as I continue :) .

That's where I buy my photo bags. For as many as I have purchase, they insist on trying to pass those off as bags of lip gloss 🤣.

I buy paints and clear coat for my rapalas

Hobby Lobby has a lot of good stuff. It's like stepping into a time machine but that's cool too. 

The last craft fur I bought from them looked awesome but became very fragile when wet. Let us know how that one works. It looks awesome.

yep, I knew.  Micheal's & Joann are also sources for fishing stuff.  Hobby Lobby is where I get "Bonnie" polyolefin macrame cord which combs out to long thin fibers that I like in streamers and also "satin" embroidery floss for bodies. At one of those stores I got a skein of metallic piping that would probably tie a zillion minnow bodies for about the cost of a yard or two from the fly shop. What could you use "Iridescent Mylar tissue" wrap for? I haven't used it but stumbled across an ad that made me think shell backs.  "Aleene's Flexible Stretchable" is pretty good for a few uses.

It's kinda funny that I've spent ten times more fishing money at these stores than at Cabela's or BPS.

Blah! 🙄

It failed the swimming pool test.  The stuff doesn't move like fur.   

I can't like it.  👎

that has been my take on all the craft furs and faux furs that I've tried. Still a lot of people use the stuff and it looks OK dry.

The fish in the pool have probably seen too many lures.....
