Fly Tying

Need Help Identifying this Hair/Fur

Recommended Posts








I got this frfom a friend of mine who was cleaning out his dads house. He klnew I was in to fly tying so he sent me this and a bunch of other items. There was a tube of Overtons Wax too but just about gone. I am just trying to establish a time line. I think this is a piece of Polar Bear but I have never tied with any of it nor have I seen any. From my web research this would be from the side with the long hairs hanging down. It's hard to tell by not feeling it but it is real soft. Not like fox soft, but fine, like my Labs.


The bottom where it is dark is underfur left from where hair was clipped away for tying.

I checked that and I would say it is. I know the pictures are hard to see. The hair hanging down is more like Labrador hair I would say. Maybe 4-5 inches long or longer. The fur on the skin has soft guard hair under it and is more like calf hair but perfectrly straight.
