Some guys master the art of dubbing to perfection, getting the right amount of dub for the thread everytime, winding it looks like a cakewalk, etc, etc.
Here is a quick run down of how to use 3 different techniques for dubbing your fly.
First one is the normal simple dubbing where you apply the dub, twist with your fingers, this is a good way of making a dubbing body, that is tight and the fibers are close together, you can decide to brush it afterwards.
Number two is a dubbing loop, nice to do if you want to apply fur as dubbing or just want a body that is more fluffy and transparent, brushing it will make the fibers long and the body thin.
Number 3 is just as number two, but this time, split the thread, with this particular dubbing technique you will be able to make dubbing on dryflies without building up to much thread.
Ps. Sorry for not posting the last 2 weeks. Workload on the job has been quite heavy. but now it looks like there will be some time for posting and time for tying again.
