    what do most of you use for the fangs of a snake. In the past I have used quils of a feather but I am not fond of the look. Any options or opinions would be great.

    Thanks

    Snakes actually shed their fangs so you could always use a shed fang. Most people i know who keep venomous usually have a ton, what'd you need?

    Heavy mono fish line. Find leader material or heavy line, heat it and pull it bringing it to a thin point and then trim it to suit your needs. Also, you can do the same thing with thin clear tubing. Good luck JL.

    Damn you Jean. Beat me to again. LOL. If you want it opaque, just use sand paper. Lay the line on a surface and press the sandpaper down on it. Then pull the line through.
