These are a must have for every tyers room. Whether you're tying a hair wing pattern or need a good dubbing. The tails are long and soft with the maximum length at roughly 3-4 inches.
I ordered squirrel tail in several colors to do some small clouser type flies for crappie and white bass this spring. The length of the hairs where great for most of the length of the tails. Very usable stuff. The colors were also very good with one exception. The blue tails were a little closer to turquoise than the blue I was hoping for. I went ahead and tied a few up and they look good and should do the trick just fine. It just wasn't the shade I thought I was getting. Overall, though, definitely a good product and very easy to work with.
I love me some Bushytails. Purchased two tails, natural gray and natural fox. The gray tail I received is a little thin but the hairs were straight with decent length and lots of white guard hairs and a small patch of brown guard hairs. Which I though was cool. The natural fox tail was much bushier but only about half of it has the reddish-orange guard hairs. Would've like to see more reddish-orange but there is still plenty to keep me busy for a while. And, for $3 and some change, I really can't complain.
Very pleased with the quality. I use these for a number of patterns with no complaints. Be aware that none of the colors are particularly bright but that's what you get with squirrel.
