What are you guys using to make dubbing brushes? just spinning them while the thread is on the hook? or one of those contraptions that wapsi makes? or did you make your own? the wapsi one is only 50 bux. but I'm not sure I even need one......

I've got one of the Turbo Dubbing Twisters that Jim Smith made. I"ll bring it to Greensboro and you can test drive it. It's pretty cool.

I made a reasonable copy of the one Norm Norlander sells for my Nor Vise. It works a lot like the dubbing brush rigs like Jules got.

Some threads you can split and put the dubbing material right into the thread. Your bobbin is then the spinning tool. Benecchi threads allow this as do many of the UTC threads.

Shown about 5:30 into this here vid...

The one Jim Smith makes is pretty nice. He's a great guy as well. I can't remember how much he sells them for, but it's pretty close to $25.

What? I'm supposed to brush my dubbing? Good grief, I have a hard enough time getting the stuff to stick to the thread as it it. Okay, do I brush with an upstroke or downstroke? This fly tying is getting too technical.

Guys,

B/4 you spend big $bucks$ on a dubbing twister ----- Give it some thought !!!

Dubbing a dry is OUT OF PLACE NOW !! Antiquedated !! Floating Poly Yarn is the real deal now.
Next off .... nymph dubbing _____ such as peacock ice dubbing is knock tha hell out. As in a Prince nymph. Also DMC imbroidery thread is good on flys such as a Blonde Tellico.

And I am telling you cold ------- nothing dubs better than hair off a long haired cat for nymphs --- nothing!!!!!!!!

If I stepped on somebody's toes or egos here .. sorry

JT
