It has taken quite a while to come up with a name for my dubbing blends but in the tannic stained waters I fish I thought the name was apropos. I started to blend dubbing back in 1974 for one main reason, I noticed the actual color of aquatic insects are not one solid color but a combination of colors and what better way to imitate the actual insect than to mirror the colors of the original. Now I’m not saying that I was the first to do this but through the years these dubbing blends have proven themselves year in and year out. Couple the blends with a holographic flash, Diamond Dub Holographic, and you have dubbing that cannot be compared to any other dubbing. Another item unique to my blends is the length of hair I use, it is not chopped but cut straight from the hide which is a time consuming method but it yields the results I wanted to achieve. I tie all my flies that require dubbing with Darkwater Dubbing, from dries to nymphs and yes even streamers and they all work. Give it a try you have nothing to lose.
