Is anyone tying with raccoon fur? This is all new to me
Charlie's fly box has it on it's shelves
Did a quick google and saw all sorts of stuff, boy am I out of the loop?

Re: Racoon
Well then consider I-70 from Glenwood to Silt a regular cornucopia of free tying materials!

Re: Racoon
I had a bunch of it shipped over to me. I really haven't used any of it but its there when the need arises.

Re: Racoon
I'm thinking of getting some zonker Sykes cross ut strips. I think the hair may be longer than a bunny.

Re: Racoon
The ones I have are but the only thing I don't like is that the hair is looser on the strip and falls off very easily. It may be the brand, who knows, but I know I inhale more hair then what ends up on the fly.

Re: Racoon
Good to know, if it sheds that much at the bench that's not a good sign for when flying 2000 MPH

Re: Racoon
the shedding sounds like it is either really old fur or it was not properly carerd for prior to or during tanning,
