It does, it’s just the technique and patterns that differ. Large WBT have a taste for mouthfull size offerings of easy food, be it fish, mammals, crustaceans, or amphibians.
Stocked reissie fish have that same instinct, they just don’t have the same extensive menu to choose from.
I do this with all my dubbing, as I find I can control the amount, and pre ‘tease it’ so to speak ( for instance if preparing a small amount for a split thread ).
Just cut the bottom corner off the bag, better than any boxes or containers.
You have only two posts, and both are relating to this. I also noticed your avatar is a screenshot of Tom Bell in his street theatre role.

You are imitating caddies larvae, which are generally quite a mouthful. The patterns of hooks you’ll be losing are generally longer in the shank anyway, for the most I’ll use 8 through to 12 typically.
As they are not beaded, any weight has to go under the dressing, so if you are after something...
When your opening salvo basically insults a large percentage of the members by bringing into question any skills or knowledge they have gleaned over many years, it’s not unreasonable that you may get a little flak in return.
