Wild Boar Hair

Split Tails

Wild Boar Hair is an ideal natural material to use for tails on mayfly patterns. While it makes an excellent tailing material when tied in full, it is at its best when it is used to construct split tails. On fly’s size 18 or smaller, the hair can be easily split into two or three equally sized tails.

You’ll quickly find that Wild Boar Hairis faster and easier to work with than nylon fibbets.
