There is wet fly, dry fly and quick sink dubbing on the market. There is natural and synthetic dubbing and about a million different brands. Synthetic dubbing is hard to mix colors if you need a special color. For tying jigs I would use the wet fly or the quick sink dubbing. Good luck. :yahoo:

Thanks!!

 

I got this off of The Bug Shop Site:

Take Glo Bugs®Yarn in any color and cut it in 1/4 inch pieces. Put it in a spinning blade coffee grinder for a couple of seconds. It makes perfect dubbing for small flies! It sparkles and is real buggy!

 

 

 

Sounds it could possible be pretty cool to use for a body on a jig

I get some great tawny-brown colored cubbing from the cheapest source-----A toy stuffed lion.
