Faux Fox Tails: What it is and how to use it
Faux Fox Tails are a great product by Cascade Crest Tools. The Faux Tails are perfect for tying large bait fish, salmon and steeljead patterns as well as crab and other streamers. The tail itself is built with a 0.50 stainless wire, and spun with bits of flash fibers, creating a super flashy, vibrant brush. Two 18” tails come per pack. The material sinks quickly, and can be tied without any added weight. It undulates well in the water, but also sheds water, thus false casts well. The Faux Fox tail is a great material for tying flies for a variety of species such as trout, pike, salmon, steelhead, bonefish, tarpon, GT's and other species.
