THIS syn­thetic dub­bing is made up of long fi­bres with added flash in the form of a very fine tin­sel. This gives it an en­tic­ing iri­des­cent ef­fect and adds a won­der­ful 3D translu­cency to a fly. The fi­bres are re­ally soft and when you pull the dub­bing apart it is very light and airy which makes it very easy to dub with. Be­cause the fi­bres are long you can eas­ily rope it up us­ing the light­est of pres­sure between your thumb and fore­fin­ger. Then tie the end of this rope onto the hook shank and wrap it around like a fine che­nille, as I have done for the CDC Buzzer (right) us­ing the red dub­bing. It is the per­fect dub­bing for ty­ing nymphs and wets, and it also pro­duces a tight enough body for dry flies. Its flash and shine also makes it ideal as a hotspot en­hancer whether it be as a tho­rax or just to fin­ish off a head. There are 10 stan­dard colours – black, blue, bronze, dark green, gold, green, pea­cock eye, red and red­dish, brown, and five with an elec­tric-blue UV sparkle – UV olive, UV orange, UV black, UV bronze and UV green. Also avail­able in a Hem­ing­way’s pea­cock dub­bing box con­tain­ing 12 colours for £16.99.

“The dub­bing adds a won­der­ful 3D translu­cency to a fly .”

The dub­bing has a light and airy tex­ture.
