Default Re: Moose and Antelope Hair

JC - great score.

Antelope is great for spinning. It flares well (hollow hair), and can be used anywhere you see deer body hair used- spun bass bugs, bombers etc, grass hopper patterns etc. Folks also use it to tie Serendipities.

Moose- the body hair is used a lot for tailing fast water dry flies like Wulffs.
If you have any moose mane (long mixed black and white hair), you can use that for "quill bodies" on dry flies in black, white or black/white stripes. A Mosquito dry has both white and black hairs wound up the shank to give a black-white look. Maybe a zebra midge too?
