I concur with Knothead in using my dog - Dodger's fur. It is short and it chops and blends well with other dubbing.

The best wing material I have ever found is a Subway Sandwich Bag. One bag will last you years. Also; you can use a pencil and rub against it along a piece of wood to give it veins. Just cut a rectangular piece and slightly pull it apart until it stretches without breaking. Then; trim and tie in.

One of the neatest flies I found recently was a small alligator clip with a hook snaked through it. It was in a tackle box I found. It actually looked pretty enticing.

Then there are the bottle cap and rubberband lures the old guys use to make back in the days.

Corbo, if you want it to float; put it in a baggy with a few drops of Rainex and mix well.
