I didn't see any reference to an irresistible, or see any patterns that you posted that had a spun hair body, in this thread anyway. They are all variations of a Tup's with the yellow body or rear section, that has a pinkish dubbed section towards the front near the hackle.
It was probably mid to late 2007, or after that, if I posted about making it. Jeff Serena did some research and made some of the dubbing maybe around 1999, or 2000, when the old VFS site was alive and going strong. I wasn't even interested in any of it then. I got a small sample of his from another guy that used to frequent that forum so I could get a good idea of the end color mix that he came up with. The farm that I got the rams hair from is very close to you (Nistock farms). They throw all of the rams hair away since it's too coarse to sell for yarn making. I did my research from the supply end back mostly.
My mistake. I meant "Indispensible/Indispensable". But, Bob Carmichael's - not Tups. The thread is about Carmichael's pattern - not Austin's.
AlenB began discussing Tups Indispensable.
For those who want to view or learn about Tups Indispensable, I would suggest this link for that
Here is another Carmichael pattern, simply called the Carmichael:
Lacking a Cree, I mixed brown and Griz.

Don't want to hijack this thread. See new one about dubbing.
