Dubbing is a fundamental fly-tying skill. However, the variety and methods of application for this material can be overwhelming for beginning tiers. This short video is intended to provide an introduction to some of the types of dubbing available, as well as the techniques used to apply them. Once mastered, these basic methods greatly enhance a tiers’ ability to efficiently create quality flies that incorporate dubbing.
Remember: Less is more!
