Fur collars for ladies coats used to be in fashion many years ago, and they were removable so they could be used on other coats.

Sometimes you can find these collars for just a few bucks at a thrift store if you live in the northern states. Mink and muskrat are the most common furs.

Try Paulette Fur Company (Paulette Fur Company L.L.C. - Home) or Coffin Creek Furs (Fly Tying Furs, Home of Coffins Creek Furs - We Buy, Sell, and Process Fly Tying Furs and Feathers)

Look for craft grade fur at Paulette, the price is less than the better grades, but the fur's fine if you're going to cut it up anyway. Of course, buy what you feel works best for your situation.

Both sources are good & usually ship quickly.

should be readily available in most fly shops. I believe Waspi make a dubbing packet and perhaps patches of fur too....a small patch will go a long way.

got some from fleabay

I used to have about 2 lbs. Rat fur coat trimmings but alas no longer.
my local trapper only occasionally snags a Rat in a **** trap, so he said he'd keep me in mind if he had any luck. the price of cased fur and tanned was about the same? go figure.
Deter flies has some prices tanned, Feather Craft has a skin for $10.
