I got some nice feet from J. Stockard.  They have ~8 different colors (including tan).  Hope this helps.

Natural, tan and olive - and in that order!  I'd add light dun and rust after my next allowance!

@niveker do you have a good source for snowshoe hare ! Haven’t tied with it much but I want to include it in a few flies.

Moshup,

I happened to be driving through Orange the other day, so I stopped in at Flaggs Fly & Tackle, you may know it.  I enjoy talking to Rodney Flagg and stop in there whenever I'm in the area and have the time. Nice guy, . He's an old school fly fisherman, good stories, been around forever.  Has the shop out of his garage, sits there at his desk all day tying up flies.  Its gonna be a sad day when I drive by and the shop is closed.  He doesn't have a big selection of tying material any more, but his conversation is worth it.  He had a few feet, so I picked them up, and a few other things.  Not bad for $4/pr.  He says he gets them from a buddy up north. Normally I would get them from a reputable online fly shop, though.

Nice. Dun was what I was looking for, would have taken an olive too if he had one.

These work so well in my area and one can't have enough of them. I thought I would throw in a wider shot of my fly tying area. I know I'm preaching to the choir, but it is so relaxing to sit here and tie while having music or a movie that I have seen a thousand times going in the background. Zen.

Hook/Thread: Size 20 wide gape dry fly hook/clear polyester monofilament

Post: Snowshoe Hare

Hackle: Whiting Grizzly size 18

Body: Clear polyester mono thread colored with Sharpie

Tail: Coq de leon

It's not perfect, but I'm pretty proud of this one. I tied a half dozen last night and it took me until attempt #5 to get one that was passable. It's a lot of materials to fit on a tiny hook.
