    Default Alternative to Bucktail

    Hey Lads

    Just been chewing on an alternative to bucktail. I love long bucktails for many obvious reasons the primary being increased length in flies.

    What about some Lion Mane as an alternative!

    We could start a breeding program for them and sell the lion to the canned-lion hunter for about 1000 carats , keep the mane and enjoy longer clousers!

    Wiets could you organise some Mane for me to try?

    Your thoughts?

    If we get them to p1$$ in cans, before they're shot, we can sell LION lager as well

    reading the yak thread from wiets, and the length of that hair, it might sound like what you looking for? i'm damn interested' if the "yettie" sp delivers

    I don't think I was that 'canned' at the time but over the weekend when Elize and I were tying some flies I could've sworn she showed me some lion mane or hair - it looked like more seeryaaas klipspringer type hair - maybe she can put me right or otherwise? I'd presume this would have been taken from a lion that died a natural death not otherwise - Elize had I had one too many or was this the case?

    I have what might seem a DUMB question.

    Why not just use bucktail????
    I always wanted to be somebody,but now I realize I should have been more specific.

    i think he's looking at a much longer fibre than the bucktails can offer. some serious flies here.

    You get some really good long straight white hair from the "pronkhaar" on the back of a Springbuck. In the good old days the HUGE Browns in Steenbras used to love streamers tied with this.
