Spinning dubbing for smaller soft hackle flies

Post by wiFlyFisher »

Since there are so many excellent fly tiers on the SGM forum, I was wondering how you tie spin dubbing for smaller wets, flymphs and soft hackle fly patterns?

I posted on my blog how I have been doing it for the past year...

less dubbing, then cross wrap with the tying thread...this will give a slim body with some fuzziness and a two tone effect///thin flies in clear water don't need much stuff.

Not exactly what you asked John... :roll: but, I'm disciple of Polly Rosborough and tied BIG, FAT, WEIGHTED FUZZY NYMPHS.... YIKES!!!!.... :o :? based upon his out-of-print book, Tying and Fishing the Fuzzy Nymphs... once again, I'm out of the mainstream.... :oops:

For the dubbing loop on small flies use the finest thread you can find, something like Danville's Spiderweb.

I updated my original post and question to the group to better convey what I was thinking, but I failed to put into words the other day. I was having a brain freeze again when I originally posted this, which seems to be happening more the older I get. :D
