Yeah I like it. I got mine under a tree stand in Mountain View. :o I've got another in the freezer I need to get out and salt. it makes a nice HE or would that be RFH, red fox hair. I've been saving the under fur but don't know what I will tie with it yet.


You use the belly hair for light cahills, the urine stained belly hair for Hendrickson's. The underfur on the back is a soft grey, not red, and can be used for a number of nymphs or for a light dun dubbing. It is the grey fox that has sandy red underful, and that is used for the grey fox.

Brad,
I like these much better than the others you made a while back. Maybe swap me some in Shady? I'll Clouser-ize 'em for ya!

Yer Pal,

The first attempt was for lite eyes. The cone shape was just to hard to make in that size. I believe I can set you up with some to try :)

I went as far as ask Bob Clouser if he knew of a mold that was on the market for eyes. He said there wasn't one he knew of. I can't believe nobody makes a mold for this :? If I'm over this damn sinus infection we are gonna refine and improve on it some tomorrow.
