    Just bought this gizmo because I needed really fine dubbing that I just wasn't getting for my spey flies. This thing works like a champ and you can spin all kinds of stuff into it.

    STS Trilobal Dub King Blue
    Arizona simi seal dubbing red

    Ice dub purple
    STS Trilobal Dub Fl. Pink
    Polor Chenille Claret

    black dub
    ice dub peacock
    polar chenille red

    I haven't tried feathers with it yet. Turned out a lot mini hare leaches with it today. Anybody else have one of these and what else have you mixed and spun into your dubbing?

    Worldangler gave a demo at the OP Party of one. It looks slick, and kicks out some killer dubbing strands.

    After-feathers would be great for damsel nymph bodies...

    Roper,

    That bottom left should make a good Chum fly. So Where's the one you were going to tie for me. After all the colors were my choice.

    Matt,
    marabou feathers work well for making dubbing brushes for leech patterns. You can combine hare dubbing and marabou. When making dubbing brush, put first hare dubbing on the wire, then marabou fibers.
    Cheers,
    Jan

    Nice dubbing block that you developed, Jan. I'm very impressed. Can it work peacock herl?
