I don't think this company competes with any sponsors here and would provide a great service to the tyers so I want to give them a shameless plug.

http://www.flytyingfurs.com/

Shoe located the site on the net who offers all types of skins, masks and a few dubbings. I contacted them for some woodchucks and they had them in the mail the next day. I called to confirm the order and was told that if we needed any more woodchucks we should give them a call because he has 400 in stock. The prices were right and the service great. Give them a look as they seem to have the rare, hard to find items in stock.
Fly fishing is like sex. The first time is never like you thought it would be, but you never forget it. You get better with experience. You think about it alot. You do it when ever you can until you die. You always have fun no matter what.

Let's see

400 x 3 dozen = enough sculpins for everyone laugh.gif

Now to find a deadly pattern for that opossum. tongue.gif We could call it the Marsupial. It just lays there and plays dead dry.gif
I know where they live, I know what they eat. Now it's time to fool them with thread, feathers and roadkill.

I just noticed down on the bottom of that page that they have some dubbings too, including your marsupial. Looks like another order coming shortly.

Mike, I don't think he does. I thought I saw something about No International orders.

I've bought from them before excellent skins, another one you can also try is

Moscow Hide and Fur

They also have bird skins and feathers. Great folks to deal with.

The Link is bad.

Anyways, skins are here. Nice 3 day turn around on the order.

BTW, he threw in a slightly damaged rabbit and a grey squirrel (minus tail) for good measure. Anyone need them.

Those look great.

Better keep those extras, we'll grind them up for dubbing. wink.gif
