  • $4.25


Moose mane is used mostly for wrapping bodies on dry flies such as the Mosquito.The hair typically has a mix of black and white hair. Tieing in a single black and white hair and wrapping the body to create a barred look for the Mosquito body. It is not as well suited to dry fly tailing because of the excessive length and excessive taper near the tips. The length of moose mane is around 6" or slightly longer. TIEING TIP - use some Wapsi Z- ment ( Zap product) on the body of the Mosquito before wrapping the moose mane. This step will bond the hair to the thread base and make the fly more durable. Item# 825
