So I am going to be making some Mepps type spinners with the wire former I got for christmas.
I know that Mepps claims squirrel tail is the best hair to dress a spinner with.
I have a coworker from Texas who is going to get me a few bigger squirrel tails.
But I was wondering if any forum members have used the tails from Alaska red squirrels?
My stepson wants to harvest a few and he wants to try eating them so I will not be harvesting them just for the tails.
I'm hoping the hair is long enough to work well for what I want to do.
I have started tying my own Bucktail and have all the neccessary tools to dress the hooks so figured why not tie a few with Alaska squirrel tails.
