Badger body hair has very soft long under fur hair with some sparse guard hairs. This hair is ideal for slow water conditions where you need a lot of movement from the hair wing. The natural hair is great for saltwater patterns such as Gocha's, Crazy Charlies, etc. This is very nice for saltwater while the more traditional badger is more commonly used in Atlantic salmon and Steelhead patterns. Pieces are 4 squared inches (25 squared cm). Note: not suitable for zonker strips.
