the Inventor of Trout Streams sent a fox squirrel my way yesterday, and with some help the pelt is now awaiting final processing. what a Gorgeous coat it had!

lazy bones that i am, i will ask the members here what their favorite pattern is, using this glorious stuff. i cannot wait to tie something, or several somethings, if only to thank the skinning instructor.

gee, thanks folks! i'd heard of the nymph, but never seen one or a pattern. glad to have it. the streamer sounds reallly nifty, and now there is a use for that odd floss in the box...
