Dog hair works well, it also makes your fly box smell like a wet dogs Ass. Don't believe me? Try it.

I can definitely say, I have never seen a fish eating a wet dogs ass. Of course, I'm not a fish...maybe they really like it? HaHa

They might, but i dont' want to have to smell that everytime I open my my fly box. Tis nasty. And, of course when you inevitably lose that fly to a rock.. the smell doesn't go away.

I have always wanted to stop and get a bunch of porcupine quills for tube flies and other ties. I am gonna have to find out what the law is for taking road kill. Pretty sure songbirds are off limits period here as are all bird of prey. Can't even buy BOP feathers without a major permit process and all kinds of paperwork.

My wife gets HANDFULLS of very fine fur, every time she combs-out her cats. She has both a Siamese and a Balinese (long-hair siamese). The fur, which she throws out is golden brouw or gray, and is like a very fine dubbing. Would this be a good (usable) dubbing material?

Yes it would. Another good material is your drier lint. If you have cats their hair will be trapped in the lint, it looks like the long guard hairs in rabbit dubbing. Next time you clean it out take a look at it before you throw it away.
