I got a little of this Finnish Raccoon Fur earlier this year, but have just looked at it since, lol! It's really different and has a few long straight Hairs, but most looks like long underfur. Anyway I wanted to tie something to see what to think about it. So here is a 1/32 Oz Roadrunner to take advantage of the Blue and White color combo!

Most people double haul so they can throw their mistakes further - Bernard "Lefty" Kreh - R.I.P.
On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

Racoon dogs in Finland. The raccoon dog is an alien species in the Finnish fauna. Originating from eastern Asia, it was introduced to the former Soviet Union between 1929 and 1955 as a fur animal and the first animals had been spotted in Finland in the 1930s.

Looks pretty cool.

Here are a couple Victoria, TX road kill opossum fur jigs roflmao that a buddy of mine tied a while back. They tend to get "matted" up though. But, they do catch fish. woot

Well I also have a real Possum jig too, but this stuff is noting like a possum, lol!

Here is a couple possum jigs I tied 8 years ago. I do know a little about American Possum hair and even a little about Australian Possum hair which is very different!

Just wanted to see how it would look to have a jig tied using Possum!

This one I also added a Jungle [censored] Nail for the back side eye!
