Pine Squirrel hair is a relatively new item on the fly tying scene but it has become very popular in a short time. Flies such as John Barr’s Slumpbuster feature the material.
Wapsi’s pine squirrels are soft tanned and are available both in their natural color and dyed colors as well as barred. Although the underfur can be used as dubbing – our favorite use of the material is as a zonker strip.
Wapsi offers pine squirrel zonkers both in standard (1/8) zonker strip and in a micro cut (1/16) for use on smaller flies.
