Since Snowshoe Rabbit Feet is a natural material that floats very well, it’s most often compared to CDC. CDC is a feather with natural floating abilities and Snowshoe Rabbit Feet is a fur, and while they both float very well, Snowshoe Rabbit Feet tends to be a bit more durable and require less maintenance. Snowshoe Rabbit doesn’t require a specific floatant, however, it’s not as easily tied in and doesn’t have the ability to tie small flies as easily as with CDC. While both have their pros and cons, Snowshoe Rabbit Feet are a good choice whenever you need durable buoyancy.
Snowshoe Rabbit Feet can be used in a ton of different patterns, but the single most popular fly that uses this material is Fran Betters’ Usual Dry Fly.
