I don't know if this is unique or
not, but it came to me yesterday...
Take an old toothbrush. (Not the wife's new one! Or an electric one!)
Cut off all the bristles, clean it up, superglue a piece of Velcro, (the
spiky half!) and trim to size. Voila! You have a super duper dubbing
rubber upper! (My patented name as well!) ~ Mick Porter from the sunny (and rainy) UK..
Publisher's Note: If you are really in a jam, just use
the bare brush without the Velcro.
Please check out the Fly Tying Section, on the Bulletin Board, here at FAOL too.
