    Jeff, let me know if you want some longer material. I have a aussie and a sheltie. Talk about some long hair.

    Cool,

    I've a big black lab whose tail hair has me wondering re a nice overwing for streamers and salty flies. The missus just got a new Habanese and it's fur is really nice and puffy/fluffy in black, cream and light brown. If you see a lady walking a dog in Ballard looking like it came out 2nd in a fight with clippers...you'll know I've knocked up some nice leaches for the coming Spring :thumb:

    When I had my Yellow lab, when the bastard was shedding (all the time) I would gather hand fulls from his back legs , great dubbing material. By the way jeff good looking leech and great name. I called mine Bart bugs after him. He's gone unforunately but I still have a zip lock baggy full of his fur.

    My German Shepherd, Gus, is also shedding pillow cases full of good dubbing material. Does anybody want some?
