  • Color Range: Moose Mane Hair offers a spectrum of shades, ranging from dark browns to light tans, closely resembling the hues found in many aquatic insects and terrestrial creatures.

Moose Mane Hair - Applications

Moose Mane Hair is a versatile material suitable for various fly patterns, including but not limited to:

  • Dry Flies: Achieve subtle and realistic dry fly presentations that entice fish to strike.
  • Nymphs: Enhance your nymph patterns with Moose Mane Hair's lifelike texture and buoyancy.
  • Streamers: Create streamers that mimic the natural movement of baitfish, increasing your chances of attracting predatory fish.
  • Emergers: Craft emerger patterns that sit delicately on the water's surface, imitating emerging insects.
  • Quill Bodies: Use Moose Mane Hair for quill bodies on Trout flies, adding a unique touch to your creations.
  • Wings for Salmon Flies: It's also an excellent choice for crafting wings on Salmon flies, ensuring they have the right look and movement.

Tips for Working with Moose Hair

  • To enhance its buoyancy, trim the hair close to the hide and stack it evenly for consistent floating properties.
  • Use high-quality scissors to ensure clean cuts and minimise hair damage.
  • Moistening the hair slightly before tying can make it more manageable.
