I agree. Angel Hair is one of the least user-friendlies I've used yet.
However,,, it does do the job well.
The trusty old Kastmaster is one of my favorite all-time go-to lures.
Kastmasters and angel hair with a couple of long hackle feathers make for one very convincing squid immitation.
Tried several times to duplicate something very close in a fly pattern. So far,, complete failure. But I've gotten it fairly close.
Perhaps for the next swap I'll have it perfected.
This is going to be my first real good (I hope) year in about 3 yrs. of being mostly a spectator.
I'm going nuts trying to wait in a civilized(?) manner!
