I use the fluorescent fly tying material for making eggs.
Really fuzzy stuff. Got a bag full for $3

Get a film canister and cut an X in the lid. Stick about 1/2" of the string through the cut and pack the rest(8-12") in the canister. Mine has lasted 5 years and still not close to running out.

Try the orange/red/pink for max visibility. I got the green and it gets lost against a green background during bow.

Yea I check the wind online regularly as well.

Seems like its wrong 80% of the time.

Just light a lighter and watch the flame.

I dont smoke but the guys I grew up hunting with ALL did and that's the trick I got some many years ago.

I dont smoke but carry a lighter
