    I agree. It's always seemed to me like Cree is just one of those sneaky marketing ploys to charge extra. I'll just stick to my grizzly/brown mix and save the Cree for the birds.

    Haha glad to be of assistance! Clinch knots are just such a pain not matter how nimble or eagle-eyed you are. I was beside myself when I learned that clinch knots weren't the only way to catch fish.

    No condimnets, yet. Figured it'd be like introducing a new food to a toddler (I have a 1yo at home); start bland then work into bolder flavors.
