Excellent video on deer and elk hair. If we are in doubt of the correct hair to use can we jus5 call you and tell you the fly we are tying and you can ship it to us? I think I know the answer because I come into your shop all the time when I am in Denver and you always, graciously, take the time to educate me. If I am using deer hair in a dubbing loop what type of hair would I use for a Caddis? Varners short and fine ? I am using it on size 12 hook and on a big river? Thanks for your brilliant videos.
