Hemingway’s Hare Plus UV Dubbing
Hemingway’s Hare Plus UV Dubbing is a variation of Hemingway’s famous Hare Plus dubbing blend featuring all the exceptional characteristics of this material with an addition of UV fibers. It is a blend of top-quality hare’s musk, soft underfur, guard hairs, a small touch of fine, sparkling synthetic fibers, and a dash of UV (ultraviolet) fibers. Hare’s mask and underfur provide the base of this dubbing mix, holding the blend together, giving it a supple and soft consistency, and making it extra easy to dub. The longer, guard hairs provide the spiky look and make this dubbing an excellent choice for tying ‘buggy’ fly patterns. The flashy synthetic fibers were added to give this material a bit of translucent appearance and the right amount of shimmer so it can effectively mimic the exoskeletons of the subsurface fly bodies. When underwater, flies tied with this material have that authentic wet, shiny look of the real insect. UV fibers enable your fly to be visible at greater distances, as UV light penetrates deeper in the water than visible light does. This becomes very important, especially in low-light situations. Simply increasing your fly visibility against dark backgrounds will increase your chances of attracting a fish and getting a strike.
This dubbing is a perfect choice for tying nymphs, emergers, wet flies, and streamer flies. It is extra easy to dub, twist-dub, as well as to form a noodle for dubbing loops. It comes in an extra-wide range of life-like colors providing for limitless applications in your fly tying patterns.
This dubbing also comes in a practical dispenser – a 12-compartmental box, great for traveling, as well as for everyday use as a space saver and a neat dubbing organizer.
All Hemingway’s dubbing blends have been carefully selected, processed, and blended to provide the finest dubbing fibers and smoothest fly tying. Check out our full selection here.

Great stuff! Have used the Natural Dark and Tan to tie some Hare’s Ear Nymphs with good results. The UV in this dubbing is very subtle. Not overloaded with UV like some other dubbings on the market. Nice mix of under fur and guard hairs.
Great Dubbing. With some mixes I find the ratio of guard hairs to underfur very inconsistent. With the Hares Ear Plus ever mix I have used has been very consistent and ties some very buggy and good looking flies. The UV is subtle but adds a nice attractant quality to flies tied with it.
