Beautiful, large American coyote tails about 18 inches long. The guard hairs vary in color from cream to tan to silver to black and make excellent tails and streamer wings. Try them in place of bucktail on Clousers, bonefish flies, and other patterns. The natural salt and pepper fibers are also well-suited to lobster, crab, and crayfish imitations. The scruffy gray underfur makes great dubbing for sub-surface flies.
Raccoon was one of Jack's favorite tying materials and these are premium tails, nicely barred, ten to fourteen inches long each. These undyed, natural tails have a nice mix of tan, golden, grey, brown, and black fibers.
