Default Which flies can I tie using Woodchuck?

Several months ago, I got to watch Mr. Walter Babb tie up some flies for about half the day. And he mentioned that the "old timers" used whatever tying materials they had available (yellar hammer feathers, squirrel, chicken feather, pheasant feathers from ladies Sunday hats, and woodchuck/groundhog). I found a place that sold Woodchuck (or Groundhog) skins and bought a whole skin and now I've got enough Woodchuck to tie with for probably the rest of my life.

My problem is that I don't know which flies in the Smoky Mountains you can use woodchuck on. I think Walter used woodchuck as a tailing material but I can't remember on what fly or flies. Any ideas on which flies I can use woodchuck fibers on would be appreciated. Thanks. Harry Crabtree
