What is Dubbing used for in Fly Tying?

Fly tying dubbing is a mixture of fibres blended in order to create a desired effect. For example Ice dubbing contains strands of mylar which is tinsel thinly cut. The characteristics of ice dubbing are that it reflects and refracts light brilliantly. This dubbing lends itself to Salmon fly wings or creating collars on nymphs.

Dubbing can be used to create bodies on flies however it can be used to create other affects on a fly. 

The type of dubbing used depends on the desired effect, with hares ear or scraggy dubbing being suitable for buggy bodies and finer micron fibres like Kapok Dubbing used for creating superfine bodies on dry flies. Ultimately, the choice of dubbing will impact the overall appearance and success of the fly.

How to use fly tying dubbing?

There is more than one method for applying dubbing to your thread. A few examples are using a dubbing loop, dubbing twister or applying it using the twist method.

Depending on what type of dubbing you are using will determine what method you should use. Ice dubbing is one of the hardest to apply as it can be very stiff with longer fibres. The easiest of the dubbing to apply would be Hares Ear dubbings which has soft and super fine fibres. To aid in the application of dubbing we can use Dubbing wax. Dubbing wax helps makes the thread tacky and therefore makes fibres adhere more easily to the thread. Check out our Fly Tiers wax HERE
