This is the Bluff Country Flies version of the venerable Pink Squirrel. The primary difference between this and the original Bethke Pink Squirrel is that I use dubbing rather than chenille for the collar. About 12 years ago I also started tying the “Hot” Pink Squirrel, which is uses a black body/hot pink collar.
My Pink Squirrels are tied with proprietary dubbing blends that include UV enhancers. This makes for unique, fish catching patterns. Tied on Daiichi 1120 scud hooks.
This fly is available from Bluff Country Flies in 2 sizes and 2 colors: Size 12 and 14 in both “regular” and “hot”. If you want a smaller size 16 they are available exclusively through Lund’s Fly Shop.
Remember to specify color and size when ordering.
