Are you simply looking for rabbit fur dyed to an amber shade? If so, most places that sell a decent variety of shades of packaged rabbit dubbing should probably have what you're looking for or something close. Check out wherever you normally buy or order your dubbing. They probably have it.

If you want the material barred in the same way a wood duck flank feather is, I'm not so sure such a thing exists commercially. But it would be easy enough to do-it-yourself with a black Sharpie either on the fly at the time it is tied or by barring the entire package of dubbing.

Its a weird color of yellow the guy that showed me it said the color is actually called Wood Duck. I lost count on how many sights I checked none of them list Wood Duck as a color, maybe this guy is pulling my leg .

Waspi makes it and it can be ordered from many fly shops. Here ya go > https://pacificflyfishers.com/products/rabbit-dubbing?variant=727989277

I have on hand the basic colors and mix my dubbing in a coffee grinder or by hand for small batches, to achieve any color dubbing I desire.

Getting the exact color is more important to the fisherman more than to the fish. Don't forget, the colors of the same insect species often vary quite a bit / specimen.

Finally if you plan to match colors, make sure you judge the color when the material is wet.

Good luck tying...
