I tied some patterns awhile back with some Iceabou that someone had given me.
I wanted to tie up some more patterns, but apparently Hareline no longer makes Iceabou in white or gray.
I tried a number of shops and couldn't find any. My local shop couldn't source it for me either.

I did find a substitute for it which I'll be ordering. It is called Niceabou.

I have no affiliation with the company but I believe BuzFly used to post here occasionally.
Just thought I'd let folks know who might be trying to find white or gray Iceabou.

For those that have never used Iceabou, it has the same shimmer as Polar Chenille. and looks great in baitfish patterns.

That Niceabou is interesting-looking stuff - seems there would be lots of movement without "turning into string" like marabou is prone to do.

I've met him a few times at shows...really nice guy and always eager to show you how he's tying a given pattern. He has some of the nicest bucktail I've seen, too.
I've heard great things about the quality of his bucktails as well.

Yeah...I won't say they were cheap, but if you want/need really nice bucktail, he's got it. I always get sticker shock when I see them at shows, but maybe this fall I'll get one to try out. I'd imagine they're the cat's ass if you're wanting to do the hollow/stacked bucktail stuff like the "fleyes".

Yea, those premium long northern bucktails aren't really available from what I've seen around here. Some of the local stuff is pretty shaky in quality at best. The best I've found locally where at Waters West.
The guys that let those nice long tails really utilize damn near every hair on them. Saltwater Edge used to carry some nice bucktails as well.
