I got in some nice Canadian pine squirrel half hides in some nice colors. Tied up some slumpbusters on #4 Allen hooks.

Haven't tied for a while and it was an enjoyable night watching football and tying.

#4 Allen 5263 or comparable, ie Daiichi 2220 or TMC 5263 (4X long, 1X strong)
Wire, Med
Diamond Flat Braid
Bead or cone head
Pine Squirrel strips

Great looking ties Erik. When you wrap the collar do you cut off the strip after tying in the tail/back and then re-attach and wrap, or do you just lash the front down and wrap while still attached (I could never get them to wrap smoothly if leaving attached)?

Nice! I stock a few in 6's and even 8's. Pine squirrel strips rock. Looks like you got that rusty red color (top and bottom on the right side). . .my favorite. Crayfish orange is another good one.
