Brown Bear

From 13,90 EUR Incl. 24% VAT

Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) is the original material for Finland's national fly pattern Nalle Puh ("Winnie the Pooh" in English). This adult caddis imitation has been developed in the '60s by Finnish fly tier Simo Lumme. In this particular pattern the bear hair is used for tying the wings. In addition to that, standard quality bear hair can be used for salmon and seatrout flies just like squirrel tail or nutria.

Color of the hair is dark brown and it's best suitable for tying the darker variation of the Nalle Puh dry fly - Dark Puh. Available in two different models; Dry Fly and Standard which is better choice for hair winged salmon flies:

  • Dry Fly: Structure of the fur is selected for dry fly tying. Premium quality contains more underfur and it's the best choice for tying dry fly wings.
  • Standard: More stiff and coarse hair with significantly less underfur. Use as a substitute for squirrel tail hair or nutria in hair wing salmon and seatrout flies. Curliness varies. Three different lengths; short, medium and long.
Model Quality Skin size Hair length (approx.)
Dry Fly Premium 6 x 4 cm 2 - 6 cm
Dry Fly Normal 6 x 8 cm 2 - 6 cm
Standard Short 6 x 8 cm 2 - 4 cm
Standard Medium 6 x 8 cm 3 - 7 cm
