The Jailbird

I love the way fur moves in the water and dubbing it all in with a composite loop makes it super strong and they last a very long time or until someone else fishes it.. then you'll never see it again!

(Thanks for the bodkin)

yes when you use long hairs from marble or silver fox you can tie very mobile and also very durable fly.
It is interesting why in Scandinavia probably 90% flies are made with fox wing when I see not so many fox wing flies for Pacific fish

Can you elaborate on dubbing it in with a loop? Is it different than any other dubbing loop? Thanks - I'd like to try tying that syle.

While I like the look of polar bear, I am starting to use more fox hair in my hair wings. I love the way fox hair moves. Tie in a couple of pieces of flash and it looks pretty good.
