DRC Dubbin

Does anyone use Delaware River Clubs dubbing? I bought a few bags to add to my dubbing collection and was wondering how well it works.

Spectrumized....I love it. I think perhaps there are too many colors, some are actually hard to tell apart especially when you start filling the rows in a fly box with them. But I'm more of a freestone guy so the tailwater crowd may need them all.

I love the apple green for a bunch of patterns, the mahogany is awesome too.

They have limited runs of rusty spinner and stonefly dubbing too, the rusty spinner is the best I ever found.

Anyway, yea, I'm a big fan. CJ

I like them, even though you have to pick out a lot of guard hairs,
They make a very nice hatch matching Usual.

CJ, I don't think I've ever seen the rusty spinner dubbing. Sounds interesting, though. Maybe Allan will offer his opinion. I need to get in touch, I haven't talked to, or seen him in about a year.

Best,

Tim

Allan is the one who turned me on to it years ago.

He as you know tyed for Caucci and was well versed in the dubbing and blending.

I have not heard from him in a while either. Hope he is well. CJ

Love the Cucci dubbing. The Hendrickson in my view is must have dubbing both light and dark.

Tim, it is interesting, and unlike the typical DRC dubbing it is raked and dyed beaver fur.
I first heard of it from a friend and went right to the DRC store to pick some up. Much to my dismay, it was sold out. The owner had a pack at his house and mailed it to me a few days later!
Then I had my monthly phone call to Frank Audino, and found out he was the guy that supplied DRC with the limited run blends!!!
He sent me the other ones I didn't have, the 2 stonefly colors. One pictured here and the other is the same yellow they use for there Spectrumized dubbing blending.

Blackdirtfly, I'll post a couple apple green flies tomorrow night to get you started. CJ

A couple simple working flies that I use often.
The caddis emerger is a DRC pattern, I vary the wing color but always keep the green body.
The other is simply a palmered body with wood duck wings in the Catskill style, no tail.

Green works for me. I seem to have good luck with green flies, dry or wet. This apple green mix of primary colors is special! CJ
