They are aussie possum. I like to shape the heads a little instead of just clumping it on.
Oh you Michigan Weenies and your goofy possum and infatuation with bunny strips.

If you want to kick up your dry fly tying, you should buy this book from Ken Sawada's site

Without the dust jacket "dry fry"

It's in Japanese but you'll understand the meat of it

A very creative and inspiring book. FYI.

Oh and buy the wet fly book while you're at it. It changed the game for me. :bow
