In early December I became interested in tying flymphs and other soft hackles. As I was developing patterns I discovered the use of the Clark Spinning Block to build dubbing brushes for use on these wonderfully productive patterns. I found one being made, however, it was a little shorter in length than I wanted and set about making one for my own. I found the most highly figured wood I had in the shop and knocked out a few in the last couple of weeks. Once I started milling the wood it became apparent that I might as well cut a few extra pieces and this is the result.
- Size: 2 x 5 1/2 x 1.
- Rubber feet to prevent slipping on the tying desk.
$25 + actual shipping. ~ All SOLD ~
Any questions, please ask.
If you are unfamiliar with how to use one, search youtube for Clarks Spinning block and that should help answer any questions.
The material is called "chalk tape". I chose to use black on these as it provides greater contrast when laying out the dubbing. In my experimenting I found that the contrast is better with a black background than a white. (If you have ever worn a black sweater next to a shedding dog you will get the picture.. You see all the hair on the black sweater, but not nearly as much if the sweater is white) Both serve the same purpose, I just preferred the darker background.
