Default Re: Dubbing materials

That looks like its mainly gaurd hairs and rubber leggs it will be harder than hares ear but still easly spun in a loop or put in a split thread

I would use 8/0 uni flat (un waxed) and dubbing wax for the loop, and in the split thread 6/0 uni

Thanks for posting this! My buddy has a couple of flies that use this material, and I was wondering how the little rubber pieces got incorporated. It's now on my "wish list".

great stuff, I also hit it with a small caliber cleaning brush I have set up to make the rubber really stand out.

Smallieman,

I don't have experience with the material but must say that you are making some interesting looking flies there. What do you call the one you posted?

Nice fly. I have used that same dubbing, and like it a lot.
