Leland on Angora Goat Dubbing
The Angora goat is a species of goat native to a region near modern day Turkey. This species was brought to Europe in the middle of the sixteenth century by Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor. Today, Angora goats are bred and ranched for their wool which is more commonly known as mohair. Even though mohair is most commonly found in sweaters and socks, the fibers of this material are perfect for dubbing applications in fly tying! Spirit River's Angora Goat Dubbing is a wonderful and soft fly tying dubbing that will closely imitate seal dubbing. This all-natural material is perfect for use in a range of nymph, steelhead, and giant stonefly patterns.
Leland on Dubbing
Dubbing is generally used by fly tyers to create the textured and tapered bodies of both dry flies and nymph patterns. The term "dubbing" actually refers to a tying technique whereby the tyer attaches loose material to a strand of thread, using that thread to build the body of the fly. Tyers refer to both the technique and the material used as dubbing. Most dubbing material is natural, but synthetic and synthetic-natural blends are also available. Take note of the properties of the dubbing you select. Different textures of dubbing material may add extra movement to your fly when it gets wet and hangs in the current while others of smoother texture will not produce the ragged look you may be after.
