Default Do you use Austrailian Possum ?

Good Day to All,

Just wondering if anyone else uses Austrialian Possum to tie up
any of your flies ? I have used it on jointed nymphs, large sculpin
streamers, etc. A packet (which usually has a patch about 3"x4") lasted
for quite sometime, but I'm having trouble finding those packets.
My "go to" fly shop has not been able to get the smaller packets,
they can only get the full pelts, which are $30+. I know that a full
pelt would almost last forever, but convincing my wife that I need
to drop $30+ won't fly. Do any of you know were the packets can
be purchased ? ( I really do not want the hair off the skin, I like to
cut off what I need & use the "underfur" remainder for dubbing. )
