  1. I just purchased a Cyclone Dubbing Brush Spinner from J. Stockard; the directions say to use thin wire. I was wondering if I could get away with using colored thread that would match the color of the body rather than thin wire?
  2. Dubbing brushes are very effective ways of creating dynamic bodies on large streamers. Up until OPST made the "composite dubbing loop" popular, there was really no way of making a multi layered hackle from many types of materials other than with a dubbing brush. At least thats where I think the Composit Loop came from. Tell me if im wrong! So back to the dubbing brush. You can put just about any material in the brush to make different effects. Use a more stiff fiber like EP fiber, or something that flows more like the craft fur I am using in this brush. You can even make dubbing brushes with only dubbing. Use Ice Dub for a flashy hackle, or laser dub for a more dull hackle. Anything you use basically creates a hackle, that you can then wrap onto your hook and create some almost impossible to create otherwise bodies. I even know of some people that use a very fine wire and use short fiber to create dry fly hackle this way. Or very buggy looks with hackle on nymphs. Thats the beauty of making your own dubbing brush, you can make it exactly how you want, and therefor have unique flies that no one else has made before. With that being said here is a list of the materials I used to make this brush. Gold UTC Ultra Wire "Brassie" size White Craft Fur Holographic Silver Starburst Dubbing Kingfisher Blue Ice Dubbing
