Hemingway’s Beaver Dubbing Plus
Hemingway’s Beaver Dubbing Plus is a unique blend of high quality beaver underfur fibers and a touch of super-fine trilobal-shaped Antron fiber. Beaver fur has been known to have natural water-repellent qualities making this dubbing highly floatable. Since beaver fur fibers don’t soak up water and are very light and soft, beaver dubbing has been recognized as one of the finest furs for dry fly tying. This is a fine textured dubbing, excellent for tapering, for smooth-bodied flies, for small fly patterns, Catskill-style mayfly patterns, etc.
Hemingway’s Beaver Dubbing Plus comes in wide range of life-like colors providing for limitless applications in your fly tying patterns.
All Hemingway’s dubbing blends have been carefully selected, processed and blended to provide the finest dubbing fibers and smoothest fly tying.
This dubbing also comes in a practical Hemingway’s Beaver Dubbing Dispenser with 12 colors, great for traveling, as well as for everyday use as space saver and a neat dubbing organizer.
One of the product reviews:
Beaver Dubbing Plus
“Beaver Dubbing Plus blends beaver with a “touch of superfine sparkling Antron”. Again, the main constituent in the mix is a natural under-fur. Beaver, like muskrat, has a very fine dense under-fur which does a fine job on dries. Personally, I think it’s the fine texture of the hair, which suits beaver to dries and small, sleek flies, more than its ability to float a fly. The fine Antron is well mixed into the blend, even a small tuft of dubbing has some in there. Again the natural under-fur binds the dubbing, holding the mix together. This dubs a tight, slim fly, I’d use it on smaller flies and of course on dries – but in my opinion it needs to be treated with a floatant.”
