    Default Dubbing Brush Blocks

    Yellow, (fever?)

    I am a big fan of dubbing loops, and use them regularly.

    I find them to make especially my bigger control flies neater ito body size, use less materials and lastly makes them a helluva lot more durable.

    On smaller flies they also work, but I tend to prefer creating the dubbing "noodle" by hand and onto the thread. I think I get a nicer looking fly which is not AS bulky as a wound loop would make it, but still buggy enough ito picking out the thorax all the while remaining durable.

    I've been looking at dubbing brush blocks/rollers from Siman and C&F I think.

    They seem to be able to give you a greater degree of control over the size and consistency of your loop and also would allow for other more interresting things to be done than you can with say the usual hand formed and spun loops, so my question is two fold.

    1) Which of you make and use dubbing brushes
    2) Have you a preference for a specific dubbing brush block, if so, which one.

    TIA,

    Not the same thing

    For that I use the dubbing needle or a plain piece of velcro for ... I find I can shape the velcro by folding it into neat V shapes and get it in pretty much anywhere even on smaller flies.

    I use a dubbing brush block to re-arrange my pubes after wacking off.

    I use the Simans dubbing block, somethimes in combo with the Magic Tool.

    Dubbing brushes you have to use the blend and thickness/texture of what you buy.

    It's easy to make your own dubbing block if you're that handy, they've been around for a while

    I'm just a lazy untechnical bgger, hence why bought my own few years back

    Chris pardon my ignorance but what exactly is a dubbing brush used for?
