Default Re: Making a dubbing brush

Thanks for the help.

As I mentioned I'm pretty new to tying and figured I'd start with panfish flies as all I have is a #5 rod. My first flies will be mini-buggers and I have seen that you can use dubbing for the body as opposed to the chenile for the full scale models. I figure the wire in the dubbing brush would make the body a little more wear resistant from strikes from the local bluegill population. Hence my wanting to use a wire brush.

Your brush maker is great and I take it from your comments that anything will work withing reason. I've been checking out other designs on-line and have come up with my own which will be forthcoming.

Thanks again. The responses are appreciated.
