Does anybody tie their Clousers with Stever Farrar synthetic?

Curious to see how this will fish. Preparing to chase Stripers in Maine for the first time this summer.

Feedback always welcome View attachment 369399
I used to, but good old fashioned bucktail flat out works better than any synthetic. Especially good bucktail.

Ten days away from the vise so I’ll start with something familiar. Normally wouldn’t use an olive shoulder on a tan one but I was just shaking off cobwebs and the skin was sitting right there.

hook - WFC Model 6 #10
thread - Uni 6/0 tan
rib - small wire gold
body - Starburst dubbing tan
body hackle - ginger
shoulder - pheasant rump dyed olive
collar/head - pronghorn

Regards,
Scott
