The Mepps Inline spinner bait has Red Fox Squirrel hair on their baits along with the Grey Squirrel tails hairs. Back many years ago when I was just a youngster Mepps use to advertise for Squirrel Tails and they would buy them from you if you made sure you salted and preserved them properly. They would pay 25 cents each for them and me and my buddy Dave would send them 200+ a year for about 3 years and then all at once they quit the program. I don't know if they found an alternative artificial material or what. I would fish both of their colors but seemed to catch more fish on the Grey tail baits than the Brown Fox tails. Might have just been an area thing since it was up north before I moved south.
