"In regards to the "arctic fox wing". I love arctic fox but always had a problem getting a arctic fox wing to lay down over anything but a floss & rib body. Do you have that trouble ?"


How tight are you wanting it to lay? When I use it it comes out looking somewhat like that yellow fly above in this post, kinda. The stuff I have been getting lately has quite a few really coarse hairs in it, along with the really fluffy stuff. When it gets wet it really sucks down. Wish I had a digital camera, I'd send you a pic. I have also found if I wax the thread and make almost a dubbing loop, I can spin the hair around the body also, comes out pretty cool.

I tie a few Thunder creek style streamers with it also, I put eyes on them and an epoxy head. yellow bottom, orange mid section, olive on top, black K-flash wing over that, with yellow grizz. hackle run down each side. Looke like a small brookie. The brookies in this pond I fish love the thing.
