    Does anyone have any suggestions for a glue to attach the rabbit strip to the string on a MOAL? I have been using arrow fletching cement, which has worked for me in the past for double bunnies. However, I have found even minute amounts of this cement to impede the flexibility of the pattern , as it dries into a very stiff set.:beathead:

    Just try gluing it at the start and not over the length of the string. I did that on a worm that I was playing around with and it was stiff when I got done the second one I tied I just did the glue thing at the tie in and not along the string. It has much better flexibilty.
