Remarkable! Where did you purchase the catgut? I need to tie some of these. Wow!

It's suture material I got online, vet quality, this is 0/4 but I would go 0/2.

Bear,
Suture material?
Very cool.
I didn't know about it.
Thanks for the tip about the weight too.

Nice to have another New Englander participating.

Bear007, Howdy;

Might find yourself re-tying these on a regular basis.

Umm, I wonder how long it will take, makes sense, absorbable, I won't tie to many.


I did find this, look at the comment section, I think they will be fine.

Patterns tied with rubber bands tend to fall apart after a few months on the hook as well.

I am very impressed with your pattern Bear. Very well done sir.

Bear007, Howdy;

Don't be discouraged ... find some that isn't absorbable.
