What kind of wool do many of you use for tying flies? Where do you get it and what is the name of it? I'm never sure what to use for a wool body or a tag on trout flies so am hoping you can give me some specifics. Thank you.

antron yarn is good you can order online or fishing fever in Halifax. if you have a friend that knits raid there knitting box. I don't use a lot of yarn I do use a lot of dubbing though.

Thanks, cooterspaw, I use dubbing as well but like to vary the look on occasion or the recipe may call for wool.
