FrankenDub Update

Guest Blogger: Paul Beel, J Stockard Pro Tyer and Owner of FrankenFly

It’s been almost 2 years since I first released FrankenDUB. I spent a lot of time researching, mixing, and testing the various FrankenDUB dubbing offerings and I’m extremely happy with the response from fly tyers. It has been very well received and always gets terrific reviews.

If you are not aware of what FrankenDUB is, then you can check out my dubbing page on FrankenFly.com and it will tell you all that you need to know. Basically there are three lines of FrankenDub, Monster, Nymph, and All Purpose. Monster is long and made for streamers. Nymph is of course for nymphs, but it could also work with dry flies. All Purpose is a non-sparkle short dubbing that could be used on all types of flies.

One of the newest additions to the FrankenDUB line is Mermaid Pink. I have recently included it into the Nymph Dubbing line. This is not your ordinary pink. If you look closely, you will find red fibers mixed within as well as some sparkle. It also includes natural fur with guard hairs to infuse softness and more bugginess. If you look at it from a normal eye view, it looks pink. My hope is this unique blend will help it become just as popular as some of the other colors in the Nymph Dubbing line.

To show you examples of some of the things you can achieve by using FrankenDUB, I thought I would include photos of various flies from various fly tyers that have been tied using the different offerings of FrankenDUB dubbings.
