Squirrel and Herl. Just came across the how to video published by Tightlinevideo on you tube. Haven't fished it yet, but I'm sure this will catch something. Just have to wait for the 90 knot winds to die down...

Pine squirrel zonker strip, peacock herl, hackle. Simple!

Nice. Is the pine squirrel strip from the tail or is it body hair/hide?

So local anesthetic was applied before removal of that pine squirrel strip? ;)

Might have to give that a try. Can't make the same promise as in the title though. They are so numerous here in the woods. An old fellow I know claimed if you shot one, six would show up for the funeral. Years ago I thought I could protect my bird feeders from them through 'harvest'. Not a chance. At some point, I just got tired of the carnage. But I do have a bag full of tails and a couple of full skins. (they're quite tasty, by the way; you just need a LOT of them).

We seem to be confusing the issues. The title of this thread is "No Animals Were HARMED in the Making of This Post". It does not say "No Animals Were KILLED..."

I have to confess that my tastes and yours don't mesh. What kind of seasoning do you use on those tails and skins to make them tasty? :eek

Another possiblity is that the squirrel was just lying alongside the road waiting for someone to recycle its body parts which it no longer needed after the fatal accident. As for the peacock herl, most of the peacocks that I know will gladly donate ONE of their tail feathers for our noble pastime.

:lol :lol :lol Sometimes I surprise myself at how ambiguously I can write. The FLESH is quite tasty. Curry is the secret.

OK, that does sound better. I was envisioning you coughing up a huge hairball, like my cat. :eek

I had a cat that looked like a hairball once, too. (sorry - couldn't resist. ;) )

Wll I would have to admit that Fifi is pretty much a big walking clump of hair. Ever since we got her I have thought she looks like a big walking bunch of black marabou.

Snip snip!! I had occasion to 'trim' my old black lab when I needed a quick black bear substitute for a salmon fly. Not ideal, but not bad. Kitty hair would have uses, I'm sure!

With black lab hair as part of it the fly will definitely love the water and will probably go chasing after the fish.

Yep. And brought them back to me without having reel.

I don't think my cat's hair would work very well in a fly. It would keep trying to get out of the water. In other words, a REAL dry fly, wouldn't even go near the water. :P
