Arctic fox tails are sold complete or in sections. They can be dyed a variety of colors. The fibers are thin and wispy making for good wings on wet flies. The average length of the guard hairs are about xx inches and would work for wings on streamers and larger sized flies. Arctic fox hairs are fairly durable and can withstand the punishment suffered from hooking up a fish that might more easily damage other materials such as marabou.
The under fur on a arctic fox tail are densely packed and slightly shorter than the guard hairs. The under fur can be used for dubbing.
When using the guard hairs for wings it helps to comb them out before cutting from the tail. This will separate the hair fibers and provide more action when in the water.
buying any hair or fur that is on the hide, the hide should be soft and
pliable. The hide should be scrapped clean of any residue.
