Might give the Cape Cod Canal a try again soon I so tied up a few Mackerel flies to try.

The lower tail hair and the bottom underwing on these flies were tied using long, fine, white hair from my dog Lola’ s tail. She’s part Husky, Border Collie and Great Pyrenees.

Her Hieness–Lola

Lola’s tail fur is fine and shiny and runs up to 9″ long. Hence the name Mackerelola.  Lola’ s fur/hair reminds me of cross between Yak and Polar Bear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I often use Lola’s shorter hairs to tie this handy pattern which will be nice to have with you in the next few months.
