weird fly tying material?
Hello, I´m not tying my own flies yet but I´m planning to do so in the near future. Is there any alternatives to the expensive feathers and rabbit fur, etc.? I´m thinking of cheaper stuff I can find around the house, even if they don´t last as long. I´m interested in only tying simple nymphs (like a hares ear). Dont laugh, but I was thinking maybe regular lamb wool, color threads, bits and pieces of old carpets, etc. Is that an option? thanks.
