Here are a few tips I use when I tye flies:
I make my own nymph dubbing by using wool yarn and 2
pieces of the sticky velcro.
You can also mix different colors of yarnlike this
to get any color of dubbing you want.
- 1. Get 2 pieces of the velcro and attach them
each to the end of a large popsicle stick.
- 2. Then separate your yarn into strands and put
the yarn in between the two pieces of velcro and rub the
yarn both ways until it looks like a good dubbing.
Also your local craft store will have a large selection
of glass beads called seed beads in all different colors.
They come in two different sizes 6/0 and 11/0, 6/0 for
larger flies and the 11/0 for smaller flies. ~ John
