SLF Squirrel Belly

A must for tying the Red Fox Squirrel Nymph.

Over 40-years ago, Dave Whitlock, our friend, author, artist, and well-known angler, came across the Red Fox Squirrel Nymph. Because the fly resembles many aquatic insects it has become a modern classic and is a necessary pattern for the anglers fly box.

In addition to being a great trout fly, it is also an awesome pattern for steelhead, salmon, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, carp, and panfish.

Our SLF Squirrel Belly captures the correct coloration, texture, and “dubbability” that Dave desires for the original pattern.

  • Real squirrel belly hair mixed with SLF standard dubbing.
  • A spikey blend for size 8 to 20 nymphs
