Woodchuck Tails

April 7, 2008

A fly-tying tip:

For groundhogs (Marmota monax, aka woodchuck)

> Save the skinned out tails. Those black hairs can often be better than those from a moose mane for hackles, bodies and tails in fly tying…
> Ah yes, woodchuck tail hair is used to tie the fabled trout fly created by Fran Betters; the Ausable Wulff.
