Well for starters, I am going to say that this is my first time posting on this site, but I have been using it for a while as a resource. Let me say that this is a great site too. Ok, now to my question. Has anyone ever used dog hair when tying a fly. I have a yellow lab, that is actualy white, and he sheds a lot. I was just wondering if anyone have ever used it in their patterns. I never really thought about using it until tonight, when I was tying while watching TV and he (my dog) rubbed up against my leg and a bunch of hair was left on my pants. I thought it would be kind of funny to use his hair in one of my flys, so I decided to try it.
