    If you want to come over and vacuum I can set you up with brown dubbing.

    i brush my cat with a regular hair comb, i dont wash it or bag it because she is always shedding so i only take what i need, it really dont make buggie style dubbing but i dot chop it at all. i would experiment with every kind of hair you can so you can find that one perfect hair. i really like to hunt so i have a lot of fur that ive killed. my favorite is a pine squirrel, that even comes before rabbbit

    Got it... :)

    Interesting point though about the polar bear hair not causing some rejection among fish, or almost any other animal hair that's used. You'd think that (other than bananas) there would be an instinctual impulse to aviod anything like that. Maybe the fur loses most of it's scent by the time it's wrapped into a fly.

    One of the original ingredients of the Tup's Indispensable, which has to be one of the most famous dubbing blends of all time, is hair from a yellow cocker spaniel.

    I use my Akitas fur all the time. It makes a great calf tail substitute and the underfur makes great dubbing.
