Pine Squirrel

Post by NightWatchman » Mon Aug 23, 2021 2:51 pm

I picked up some dyed brown pine squirrel and I certainly don’t need all that I got. So if your
interested in a small sample pc I’ll mail it out to you in a regular posted business envelope. I
can do 6 requests if I get that many and sorry but U.S. only.

Pine Squirrel guard hairs make a good collar.

I, too, will take advantage of your generous nature. Snail mail addy to be PM'd your way. My thanks, Good Sir.

Pine Squirrel is just awesome! So incredibly soft yet maintaining that spiky look! Wayne, I like what you have done with the collar on your pattern above! Delicious!

Here is an idea I have using the pine squirrel that messed with our screen door up at the lake. I think this might be a killer pattern.

I used YLI silk color #231. my Clark's Spinning Bloc, and Bailey's Wax to create the pine squirrel spun body.

I'm glad that squirrel messed with your screen door, and you found a permanent solution! :twisted:

Gorgeous fly. ;)
