Hemingway’s Frosty Dubbing
Hemingway’s Frosty Dubbing is a fine texture, premium quality dubbing blend of very soft and long, translucent fibers. This material has been designed so it has just the perfect amount of ‘frosty’, sparkly effect, but without being overpowering or too flashy. It reflects light in a subtle way. Its softness enables almost limitless applications, from super tiny nymphs to large, bulky streamers, steelhead, salmon, saltwater patterns, pike and musky flies. When dubbed loosely it looks the best, great for ‘buggy’ style patterns.
Hemingway’s Frosty Dubbing comes in a range of colors.
This dubbing also comes in a practical Hemingway’s Frosty Dubbing Dispenser – a 12-compartmental box, great for traveling, as well as for everyday use as 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.
One of the product reviews:
“Frosty Dubbing all one type of fibre; curious stuff. Frosty looks translucent until you turn it and it seems to gleam. I guess this has a flashier side or angle to the fibre, but whatever it is that does it the effect is pleasing and prevents this becoming brash or harsh.
From the pack the fibres are a fairly long staple. That can twist onto a thread but it suits other dubbing methods more, which is fine in a loop or rolled into a noodle and caught in by the tip and twisted. For a shorter staple tear a pinch of Frosty Dubbing, the fibres can be ripped shorter – which creates more ends and more spike. A fairly fine soft synthetic dubbing, I’d use this for wet flies and streamers of one sort or another.”
