What material other than marabou have you made the tail of a 'Bugger' out of? I am just curious. Like to hear other tiers ideas.

Artic fox certianly makes a neat and animated streamer. I wonder how the local red fox and 'all to common here' coyote would do?

I started thinking about Woolly Buggers after reading a article in FlyFusion magazine recently. I tie a lot of Woolly Buggers and they produce a lot of catches for me. I am more budget minded these days than in the past. Trash Flies has moved from a experiment to more of a life style. It is easy to play sometimes with materials and 'to see what if' but getting down to the brass tacks of what becomes a good to use material or technique to tie a front row pattern is a little more complicated. How to have fun in the sport and at the same time be cheap ;)

Polar hair is good because it "swims" a little. Coyote is too stiff, But a good yote is a dead yote

Here some I did last night with one material (yarn) brushed out. Sort of a creative license on a Woolly Bugger.

JT are you talking about yote tail?

Agreed on that but the body hair seems limp enough to me provided it's long enough for the length tail needed. FWIW I have a yote skin I'd just about give you to try.
