I make several flies I have to call The Boss because Boss is my dogs name. I don't post or talk about the fly because there is a steelhead pattern by the same name. Here's Boss the hair machine,

I used to have a cat called a Turkish Van. They are unusual in that they swim. Yeah, a swimming cat. Who woulda thunk it? I just had to try that out. Wouldn't dub worth a hoot, but it was great as tail material for crease flies.

Last fall, a couple of girls came into the shop with a strange request. They asked me to tie a couple of flies with some of their own freshly cut hair. The flies were birthday gifts for their father. The parameters were that the flies had to be certain color combinations, and I had artistic license to do anything. I made a couple of classical Steelhead looking flies. I wish that I had pictures of them because they were some of the best works that I had done in a long time.

We had a Basset named "Daisy". When she blew her coat each Summer, I'd comb her out and collect the soft undercoat; a very light tan color (she was a mahogany and white Basset). I use it for bodies on light colored flies, like Cahills and Caddis. It's in a zip lock bag, marked "Daisy Dub". Every time I catch a fish on one of those flies, I say to myself, there's one for Daze! She was a great dog.

........guarding the house, as only a Basset can do it!

Here are the new hounds; yup, just pups, but when they blow their coats this Summer, I'm already thinking of two more bags; one black and the other white. Meet "Bogie" and "Zoe"; taking me for a very early morning walk in Maine!

Nothing unusual for me about using pet fur to tie up flies.

A guy I know stops and picks up dead squirrels on the road. I assumed it was for fly tying, but have recently gotten the inclination that you might want to think twice about eating dinner at his house.

I still have a wad of fur I brushed out of my Draathaar who passed 6 years ago. Great grey and red colors and very buggy.

Fur from an overweight black lab works great for dubbing, nymphs sink like a rock.

Like Chris,
I tied a fly with my son's hair. I managed to catch a nice 10-11" brown and I must say that probably was one of his proudest moments in life!
