Any advice on patterns would be greatly appreciated.

one fly, which springs to mind is the ‘Grizzle Mink’, a Neil Patterson pattern.

Rather than see which patterns use those furs, perhaps try using them on existing patterns or create new patterns depending on their dubbing/winging qualities etc.

All well known flies started somewhere and were usually tied with whatever was available at the time.

I've heard of water badger being used as a "sub" on the "Rat" series, of salmon hairwings,
