All of the John Rohmer products are unique and have a lot of interesting applications. Simi Seal may be used as dubbing alone or mixed with various furs...just chop it and put it in a dubbing blender. I use it for buggers, thoraxes, scuds, emerger shucks...etc. The AZ synthetic dubbing is great for thoraxes, abdomens and may also be mixed. I also use AZ Diamond Hair, which was designed for minnow patterns, for thoraxes on many small may fly, caddis and midge patterns...I don't know of anyone else who uses Diamond Hair for those purposes but I must say that I have experienced some great results with it...
