    My best buddy has tied up some caddis patterns using hair from his wife's old Maine Coon cat. The cat has been dead for a few years, but she just got another Maine Coon, so there may be some new flies appearing.

    I used a blondish cocker spaniel we had years ago for dubbing. Tied up some big hare's ear or a stonefly nymph that was similar. The fish really liked it and went 4 fish in a row. First three came unpinned at shoreline and the last kept the fly.

    Yuck! I can see using mustache or beard hair but not something from your pit.... next think you know, you'll be using hair from a different part of your body!

    I thought it was the urine stained underbody fur of the red fox.

    But what the heck do I know. I also don't know any fox with urine stains on the belly.

    I thought it was the a vixen arctic fox.... but it makes no difference. I've never seen the material sold at fly shops...

    There's plenty of other pink dubbing material out there without resorting to something very rare.

    I don't think I'd be for sneaking up on a female arctic fox to trim off tummy fur that she peed on. Who came up with this stuff?

    Soooo, are you one of those tyiers that just accept what ever come along at the fly shop? Besides, the vixen might just enjoy the attention. Be a little more discerning, GAT. Think of the fox, after all she has to live in the arctic all year long, winter included. Not a lot of social attention in January, up there. :)

    I met a couple of foxes but at the same time culled through a couple of piranhas and a smattering of shrews.

    I thought the shrews were best suited to the steelhead patterns.

    Don't want any part of piranhas.
