Why fly-fishing with fur & feather is fantastic.
In the conventional fly-fishing method, artificial flies are tied using materials including feather and fur onto a hook to imitate naturally occurring fish fodder. When doing so the rods and lines are pretty light weight, together providing the perfect weight and momentum for great casting.
Fur is used to make dubbing and also for wing and tail in both salt and freshwater flies. Again the type of fur you use is only limited by your imagination. It is important however to source your animal products from reputable and ethical suppliers, the days of using roadkill are over as the risk of spreading bacteria and other pathogens are a serious issue considering the amount of international travel fishermen do these days. So do the right thing.
