Yes I have been to these web sites, and the prices were noted.

Seen the fly fishing prices in Zurich, Switzerland also first hand at those shops. Bought a few flies but that was it.

Prices were way out of sight compared to what I could buy things in the US.

As many may recal, I love this stuff for winging bonefish flies - its really alive even in a very slow current.

Wink source for artic fox

I buy artic fox in 3" sq. patches in any color from feather-craft catalog as well as at my Orvis shop. Cost about $2 per. Hunter's Angling in NH may also have some. Good luck!

I'm surprised that Arctic fox isn't more widely known in US - it increasingly used for salmon flies (especially tubes) over here. If you are interested, try sticking a post up on the Spey clave & see if you can get a response from Per - it really took off in Scandinavia & Russia some years ago. The mobility makes it particularly well suited to the 'post wing' style of tube fly - eg Templedogs. Sorry I don't have the technology to post a picture; maybe someone else can provide one.

Artic Fox

:eyecrazy: wow... I forgot how much that stuff sold for in small packets, I bought 4 whole tails for 8-10 bucks each at the flyfishing show last spring!!! look for whole tails if you want to save $... the strips are easier to work with, but I think I'll suffer through! Tom D :hehe:
