Narcodog, didn't realize that there were differences in groundhog hair based on what part of the body it came from (belly, back, etc) but will have to pay attention to that! I should have known that though cause calf tail is coarse and calf belly is fine, etc. etc. And I'll start putting that underfur in a zip lock bag for dubbing and dubbing mixes. I could call my dubbing mix GroundNarcodog or just Grounddog for short!

Flyman that's a good idea for the wing on a stimulator. In fact I was just about out of orange and yellow stimulators (had given them away to fishing buddies and didn't keep myself any!). I'm trying to wrap the hooks with yellow or orange 2 mil foam. Will try this woodchuck wing idea on them this week and see what the fish think! Thx. Harry Crabtree
