Been cutting some strips of Pink craft fur into strips as a sub for the rabbit. The hair is longer and seemed to work well in the salt. I can not wait to try it out on some Steelhead this winter. I get at least the same amount of movement from the craft fur as I do the rabbit and it seems to sink better once the material backing gets water logged then the rabbit skin does. Got a large piece of it from my local fly shop for under $3.
