Snowshoe Rabbit Feet for an alternative to CDC and dry fly hackle
If you haven't tied with Snowshoe Rabbit Feet, you are missing out! This is a great material that is a lot easier and cleaner to use than Comparadun hair and dry fly hackle. Simply cut a tuft off the foot, take out or leave the guard hairs (depending on what you are doing) and tie like you would Comparadun hair or CDC. Makes great spinners, emergers, and wing posts to name a few things. Nature's Spirit produces the best colors out there so if you are going to tie with Snowshoe Rabbit, make sure it's from Nature's Spirit.
