    The easy way is to buy it from this guy- Fly Tying Materials - Unique Fly Tying Materials - Fly Tying Supplies - Fly Tying Products

    Or do it with something like this-
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozuKuJwWFns"]YouTube- Dubbing Brush Twister[/ame]
    I'm just gonna have to build an apparatus like that up before too long.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    That product is Montana Fly Company Rubber Bugger Hackle. It can be gotten from any fly fishing specialty shop that sells Montana Fly Company products.

    Absolutely. I have like four in different colors, but haven't got around to using it. I guess a bugger is the best bet as it is long, too long for a nymph.
