    I'll narrow it down to 8-10 tiers for a fly of your choice, my Son and Daughter-in-law have 3 cats and my neighbor has a big old Chesapeake Bay Retriever, so I'm looking at a variety of four types (colors) of dubbing.

    Mount Vernon, we're the Sketch in the heart of Ska
    I got a Pom, and a bunch of cats. Gray, white, black kinda mixed grizzly cree type fur for the cats. The dog needs a haircut anyway. Now what to do with the cats, cross cut or zonker strips?

    It would be great if you include photos of the pet source just for the fun part.

    I've "harvested" some black dubbing from the cat, been through a few prototypes, and finally decided on a pattern.

    So I'll be cranking out the clones in the next couple of days and will get them in the mail early next week.
