Just curious, what do you use the brown hair  for.?You know what I mean, that brown band that runs down the center of undied white bucktail or the dark hair that occurres on died tails. I haven't figured that out. Make it a contest. Submit your suggestion in writing, or pictures or both formats. The winner TBD by me will win a prize TBD by me. Lets uuse our idle Covid time productively. Deadline April 30, 2020.

So far the contestants are tied in a "dead" heat. The rules allow the contestants to elaborate or add more uses for the hair in question. I also have some insights to add. Based on them I might award yhe prize to me.

I have also used it for the top wing of small Clouser Minnows, but because the "brown hair" isn't very long it does limit the size of the fly,

Thanks Mike, I'm sure I'll enjoy the new material.   Have you tied some up already for show and tell ?

thanks mike for the ribbon.it turns out the shiny material is lengthwise, which allows me to make longer lengths.
