"I like to use the Finn Raccoon in tube flies. It is lighter than polar fox so has good movement in the water but fills out and has a little more bulk than marabou."

"Well, I have turned the Finrac zonkers into steelhead flies that probably should be banned as they will soon prove too lethat for everyday use. They look fab in the hot tub with the jets on low so they will be fab on the O.P. in two weeks.

"I found this product much easier to work with than marabou. It gives lots of movement in the water. I have been using racoon instead of marabou on my tarpon toads"

"Finn Raccoon is a great material for streamers ... nice length ... subtle movement. Just don't plan on wrapping the hide the same way you would with rabbit zonker strips."

"This is good stuff. Great for zonkering and palmering. Works like rabbit but 2-3 times longer fur. Great for larger flies, such as northern pike. Pulsates and flares as you strip it."
