    It is Wapsi which is not crosscut.

    JS Fly Fishing: Rod Building, Fly Tying: Wapsi Squirrel Strips 3/32"

    I checked with Wapsi for crosscut. You can see the direction of the cut which is with the grain. I think he needs to buy a whole skin and cross cut it himself.

    Thanks Peregrines - so if I'm wanting to strip larger leech patterns on tubes that will sink down to holding Salmon then I should stick with rabbit. Good to know, thanks.

    Thanks for the correction Silver. So a skin and a cutter seems to be the option.

    For example this Slumpbuster was tied with the same lengthwise cut strips for the tail/body and collar:

    hey peregrines,
    i'm back. after my new computer crashed or went senile, i'm back on line.

    trying to think of a interesting easy to tie pattern.
    this slumper looks good. i got probably a half dozen squirrels skinned out and ready to go, so...

    anyway, looking forward to tying something.

    peregrine, i'll send a personal note

    thanks for posting
