    Saint Bernard hair for fly material

    I have a long haired Saint Bernard that I have recently been trimming his back and tail hair and tying up a few jigs with it. I am not a fly fisherman, but with the brownish/reddish, white, and black hair my dog has...I figured I could find someone that would want to try tying up some flies with it. The longest is his tail hair, which is white and brownish/reddish and is no longer than about 7 inches at the most. I have tons of hair, as he is a big dog. The tail hair and some other parts are kinda crimped, his back hair is mostly coarse straight hair, and the ear hair I used earlier is silky and nice and fine. I mail you a sample, if you want more let me know. I'd love to see fish caught on flies made with Gibson's hair.... Otherwise I'll be tossing out tons of his hair. I figure this is about the most "sustainable" fly tying can get...very renewable resource

    to give you an idea of his color...looks like it'd make a good shrimp/crab pattern!

    I have an inexhaustable source for temple dog dubbing next door, and I use it quite often.

    Thanks for the hair Shark.
    Nice action in the water. Pulled the hook on two trout today.
    Will post a shot when I land one on the "Hair of the Dog"
