Thread: Roadkill

  1. Default Roadkill

    Ok all you fly tiers (of which I am not one, I still have my sanity) how many of you actually stop the car and pick up roadkill to tie flies?

  2. Default Re: Roadkill

    Too unsanitary.. But I have been known to "shave the dogs" and shoot a few pigeons in the back yard.

    No roadkill. I have been known to kick the rack off a dead buck though and take it home. Kind of messy.

    I'm embarrased to say that JB is not only beating me, but lapping me on the truly funny smart-arse stuff.

    Cliff, I can honestly say that I have never "harvested" roadkill to use for tying material, and don't intend to. (i'm big on synthetics for their sparkle, and roadkill just comes up short there.)
