Anyone used this?
Got hold of some last night and whipped up a few hare and coppers, but its really difficult to get it to dub like normal and have all the rubber bits sticking out, Undecided
Have just read up on "dubbing loops" so will give that a crack tonight, but if anyone has used it and has some cunning tricks???

Hey Alex

If it's the same stuff I use I get a bit of valcro ( the rough side ) and glue a bit on a fine piece of wood or metal. I then run the valcro bit over the fly and under it to pull some of the rubber bits out. Sometimes I end up with the rubber bits folding over on themselves so I just cut them so they become separate pieces. I find this is all I need. Others will have better ways I'm sure.

BTW I also use the 'valcro tool' for making hare fur flies look a bit more buggy as well.

Cheers
Nick

Yeah dubbing loops work pretty well. Otherwise try tying it really sparsely.
