Five different but simple dubbing techniques using the same hair, to give five very different effects. All these techniques can be used with many types of hair & fur and adapted for dry, nymph, wet and streamer patterns. If these simple skills are learned and practiced they will not only improve your tying but also make your time spent at the vice, much more enjoyable, and will result in neater and quicker flies. These short tutorials will hopefully help all those who are new to our craft, fly tying clubs & workshops, to get the new beginner off to a solid start and establish a good foundation for mastering the art of fly tying. If you have any questions regarding anything “fly tying” you can post a comment and I’ll try and answer it as soon as possible. If you know anyone that is starting tying, especially youngsters, please recommend this new series for them, they are the future of our craft!
