    Asking this question for my grandson. Is there a market for squirrel pelts? I know Mepps take squirrel tails to work into their lures but need to know about the hides/pelts.

    Sorry, they are used in fish lures but the quantity is not such that it develops a market for them. Most valuable furs are used for warm clothing or designer apparel.

      Get a copy of Fur-Fish-Game. My January fur report shows squirrel topping at $1.00.

        CRM is right FFG has listed them for years. If they sell or not I do not know. Mepps is probably the best deal going

          mepps you need a ton of them to make it worth the shipping, i live not far from where they need to be shipped, in wisconsin. squirrel tails can be used as a fly tying material with some success... I don't know a ton about this but have been told RITT dye, works to color hair, to what effectiveness I do not know.
