Hair of the Dog (Temple Dog Hair-Wing Flies)

Temple Dog Hair is likely the most lifelike of all hairs when wet! I like using Arctic Fox for a lot of my hair-wing patterns but getting hair even up to 3 inches long can be a challenge. I can usually get Temple Dog Hair 4+ inches and this stuff is even more lifelike than Arctic Fox for a little more $. There's something about tying and fishing these patterns averaging 4 inches long that is just awesome when fishing large rivers on Vancouver Island for Winter Steelhead!These flies are tied on 2 inch long plastic tubes, an under-wing of calf tail, Kens glitter wing hair:) and of course topped with Pink Temple Dog. Finished off with real Jungle Cock Cheeks. Fairly easy full dressed patterns that look awesome in the water and catch fish! Flies like these are available on my online Tube Fly Shop at http://www.bcflyguide.com/flies.html
