Default what do you use squirrel hair for?

I have some squirrel tail hair and was going to use it for something and it didn't come out the way thought it would. So now I am wondering what I should use it for. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hi tgoodwater2002,

Squirrel tail hair can be use in a lot of flies that Deer hair is used. Tails, wing cases, or even cut up and mixed into dubbing. Here are three flies that use squirrel tail.
