Ice. Snow. Cold. That is what one thinks when hearing the word “arctic” – the record in Norway is minus 50 or so C. That is technically speaking damn cold. Unimaginable cold. So nature has to really prepare the animals living under such circumstances. They need real hi-tech outdoor clothing, so to say. This created a very special breed of hare …
The hares of Lierne grow really big. We started calling them “Jurassic Hare” … the T-Rex of the “Lepus” family. They are very strong and fast and have very good meat.
The hare feet are huge. The fibres are really long too. It can be used for a lot of different flies. It floats well and has a very interesting shine to it.
