This dubbing is great for alot of applications. It can be dubbed tightly for small midges, nymphs and dries but is also good in a dubbing loop for really buggy looking nymphs. The sparkle of the antron is good but not overwhelming
I have only used the golden stone, but i was satisfied with the color very well along with added sparkle to get the attention of the fish. The long crinkled fibers dub easy. I would recommend this dubbing for bigger flies, i.e. #12+. I would imagine great dubbing for salmon and steelhead flies.
An excellent dubbing to add a little sparkle to your fly. I usually hand mix a couple of colors together to add some depth and life. I also chop the dubbing up to make it easier to work with. I like using 3/8 inch to 3/4 inch long fibers.
The fibers are long and thin, very easy to dub. Remember a little goes a long way. Most people dub to much on thread, thus why they say not to use on a small fly. I personally have no trouble with this product dubbing on small hooks I.E. 20s and smaller 28s!!!. Makes great dubbing for midges. This fiber is antron and antron fibers stick together in the water. So if you dub a loose body and then brush it out(or pic it out) you get a very nice shiny "bubble" Great flash qualities and blends easy with other dubbing to add a little flash. Its an old standard for a reason!!!!!
