  1. When doing small mamals and water fowl are sutures stong enough to use to sew with? I was thinkin (when I found a web site that has 100 for $21.95) it would be easier to sew with. Has any one ever done this and what was the outcome?

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    No, they won't be any easier, you'll still have to sew them but with forceps (or suture pullers) instead of your fingers. You could buy a whole lot of Fireline and a needle for that price.
     

  3. 10-4 thanks George I did not think about the forcep needle puller thing. Just a thought I had.
