Just an Old Man
Anybody use road kill for tying flies. Well here's one for you. It's been on the side of the road for about a month now. It has nice black shiny fur with a little white thrown in.
The temps have been below freezing for quite a while now so nothing rots. Hell, the Crows and Magpies won't even touch a dead skunk. And not to worry, I ain't touching it either.The whole thing stinks to high heaven!
BTW: that skunk can't have been there for a month Jim, it still looks too fresh? probably not the correct word to use in this instance. I have used road kill for tying materials, squirrel, mink, ferret tails. But I'd pass on yours...
