Curious as if anyone is aware of a source for coyote tail.

Since local steelhead rivers have been closed, I have been feeding my addiction by experimenting with some tubefly patterns. One of the ones that looks promising in both the vise and the sink includes a sparse double wing of coyote tail. So far I am using a section of tail that is probably 20+ years old. It is left over from my days in North Idaho where winter was spent with a varmit rifle instead of a speyrod.

Should the pattern prove a keeper, I will eventually need a supply of tail. Sure, I could substitute but I have already named the pattern the Coyote Ugly so that just isn't an option
