The Ultimate Exotic Fly Tying Material?
If you tie flies you have probably experimented some odd materials from time to time. Here is your chance to tie a one of a kind fly. Loren Coleman, a famous cryptozoologist, is auctioning a sample hair from the scalp of a Yeti. The sample was one of several taken for scientific testing from a supposed Yeti skull cap during an expedition to Nepal by Everest climber, Sir Edmund Hillary and Marlin Perkins of Wild Kingdom Fame. This is a one of a kind piece with a lot of possibilities for the fly tier looking for the ultimate in exotic materials. Perhaps a Yeti Hair Wing Compardun? (Link to the eBay auction.)
