    Thats my plan tomorrow for afternoon. Get out dray bashing with the 12g. I may save a tail or two for a mate as he fly fishes and I think people use the tail hair for fly tying, I doubt he'd pay me though!!

    Particularly if you are in an area with any reds in it.

    Fly manufacturers will pay 10p per tail, I sent some off about 2yrs ago but can't find the company details now... for quality stalking & shooting accessories

    Back in the late 60's we used to get 6d (old money) from the game dealer for Grey squirrel tails, there was a bounty on them, we took plenty as kids with air rifles, great sport plus extra pocket money for pellets, I used a BSA Meteor with Eley wasps, great combo, then moved up to an airsporter, great days, where have they all gone.
