Default Dubbing Dork Out

I have been tying flies for about 20 years, so it is be weird that Simi Seal Leeches are now something I am stoked on. For whatever reason, I never tried to tie any of these until 2 weeks ago. My buddy and I even made a tutorial we since have dorked out that much.

I think the obsession may be due to the fact that I have never tied with AZ Simi Seal dubbing until I picked up a few packages. Stuff rules. That being said, what dubbing are you all dorking out on these days. Do any of you blend your own dub?

If you like simi seal, then you check out some of the other custom blends from Cheech and Curtis: http://www.flyfishfood.com/

Anything I can get my fingers on that spins on the thread works for me...By the time the fish notice, it's too late for them, or I'm sleeping on the job.

An up and coming material (or many materials for that matter) are those with UV ingredents. On one of my favorite flyfishing web sites there has been an ongoing discussion on the "benefits" of using UV dubbing materials.

Well why don't we open a can of worms...

Do you all think there is a benefit to using UV materials in dubbing? Do you think there is a benefit to trying to get some kind of UV material in your flies at all?

I like to try and get some natural materials in with synthetic as I do believe natural hair, fur, or feather does look differently under the UV spectrum.

?? UV stuff has been around forever. I also think it can make a difference.

I know it has been around for quite awhile but not sure it was really used (targeted) on flies all that much. However recently it seems to be making a resurgance.

Here is a link to a discussion going on in another site specifically relating to UV dubbing. Some good information.

I have no expeirience yet with the UV dubbing, but I do intend to test it this summer! I have been tying quite a few streamers with it this winter. The streamer i posted on the PikeyMclaketrout thread also has a bunch of pearl uv icedub in it. A couple of weeks ago I was brushing out the dog and had a pile of grey medium lenght underfur from the black shepard mutt. I threw a fistfull ina baggie and with a trip up to southpark still waters the next day I spun up a half dozen of these. I used UV ice dub in pearl, purple and some peacock. Cuz slimers love the cock......

I tied this similiar to how exploded did the tail in the simi seal leech. Pull and stack to mix up the dubbing. Get a a loose clump and pinch it around the hookshank. I try and get it to almost spin on the hook so it is totally wrapped around it. Then I brush all the fibers back and secure. Reapeat 3-4 times working your way to the head. Go light on the dubbing. It is easy to over dress the fly like this.

PS I am taking orders for dog fur.. 5$ a baggie. haha
