Thread: Dubbing materials

  1. #1

    Default Dubbing materials

    I have used Ice Dubbing from Hareline.

    They also have Hareline Dubbing wiggle


    Is this Dubbing easy to use and what kind of thread should I use for Dubbing

    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.
    As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!
