its spring, so we have an overstock of bernese mtn dog hair.
50 bucks an ounce shipped. extra select 75. tail hair 150 (this is by far the best for winging on steelhead flies)
any one remember what urine stained rams wool was used for ?

Reckon I'd best sort my bachelor laundry more precisely to obtain preferred shades & blends. Dryer lint dubbing may have merit, however with a little spun dog hair for strength. Are there any olive-hued breeds?

Just remember that when you buy the lady a nice gift. Select garment colors to match the hatch. Size and shape are also important, but not
nearly as much as the color of the fabric.

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.

Went down to the laundry room today to remove some things from the dryer for my wife.
When I cleaned the lint trap, I came across some neat looking fuzz. What great dubbing I sez
to myself. Now I will lurk around when my wife does the laundry. Maybe I can find a killer bug in
that lint.
Dats nothin'. I made some killer wooley buggers out of my armpit hair.

Put that is your kid's book itchy!

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!
