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 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...

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.

At one time Skunk was an expensive fur. My mother had one in the 40's and the 50's. Cost my dad upward in the $600.00 range. In the late and early 40's and 50's that was a lot of money.

We lived in Wisconsin then and my dad had a very good job. We had the best of everything. Then he quit his job to move to Washington to work in the Bremerton Shipyard. 1943 I think. I've
been going down hill ever since. bawling:
