    Danny King's Punch bait originally used cattail fuzz in the mix to hold it on the hook, should work fine for you.

    You can also use dryer lint, cotton, hair from your barbers shop, and cattails as fiber on your punch bait.

    you can use cat tail fibers dried and ground for a flour substitute

    Go out with some pruneing shears and collect the top brown portion of the cattail plant,take them and break the brown top apart and it will fluff up and become some strong fiberous stuff,I've been using it in homemade baits for fishing and trapping for years,good stuff,natural,and degradable! Also if your there you can harvest some cattail tubers and add to dinner while your at it,they are just like potatos,and the green spring shoots are a great early green to eat also.
