I have been to a fly fishing fair today, and noticed a guy there selling 'Wild Boar Bristles'. They were extremelly course, thick bristles, which looked remarkably like the bristles off a long sweeping broom.

They are about 5" long and have split ends and I suppose would make good antenaes, or maybe tails.

Would there be any use for these? Does anyone use them?
