I would go with the HareTron, or Australian Opossum if they have it...

Default Re: A question on Dubbing

For dryflies something like the Superfine would be good-- fine synthetic fibers that dub easily and don't wick up water.

For nymphs you'd want something buggier- with some spiky guard hairs (or other comparable fibers).

I probably go with either the
Rabbit Assortment or the
Ice Dub Trout Assortment with synthetic fibers that are good for nymphs and includes UV colors. A nice assortment of buggy colors.

They both have a nice range of colors that will be useful to you for fishing in Missouri.

Haretron is a mix of rabbit and Antron for a bit of sparkle and is also a popular choice, but I think the assortment has colors that will be less useful to you in Missouri like the pink and golden stone
