FINN RACCOON - More guard hair and length than arctic fox. 4"x6" piece.
Finn Raccoon is a premium fur used in the production of high quality jackets and coats. It was "discovered" several years ago by European salmon fly tyers who found it an ideal material for use on tube flies. The material later became popular among North American salmon and steelhead anglers who use it on a variety of streamer patterns. Although popular on these patterns its uses certainly are not limited to salmon and steelhead flies.
Finn Raccoon hair is extremely soft and lively (almost airy). It has a longer length than other similar hairs like Artic Fox. This makes it a great material for tying "souped up" Clouser minnows, striper flies, and bonefish flies. It is also a great material for tying trout streamers and the hair can be substituted in place of bucktail, marabou, and craft fur with ease. An added benefit of the material is that the under fur is fine and soft and can be used for dubbing.
