Default Human Hair????

Has anyone ever used human hair instead of animal hair for tying fly's?

My daughter has long, red hair. When she had it trimmed one time, I kept some for tying. It works great. She was excited when I caught fish with it.

I'm thinking perhaps Caddis Pubis Pupa pattern, I could be wrong but then he's been posting for years and I have a sort of feel for his nature
milt spawn and jaybo41 like this.
