Hemingway’s UV Dubbing
Hemingway’s UV Dubbing is an excellent quality, fine texture dubbing blend of synthetic sparkling fibers and superfine diameter UV fibers designed to increase the visibility of flies in deep waters, or in low light conditions. This dubbing blend is definitely superior over similar on the market as it has a delicate, higher quality, soft texture that is extremely easy to dub. The flashy synthetic fibers 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. The superfine diameter UV (ultraviolet) 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.
The delicate, soft texture of this dubbing material makes it great for tying even very small fly bodies. It is a perfect choice of dubbing material for tying shiny nymphs, emergers, wet flies, streamer flies, saltwater flies. It can be used to imitate the eggs of adult insects or to make hot spots on your patterns.
Hemingway’s UV Dubbing comes in a range of colors.
This dubbing also comes in a practical Hemingway’s UV Dubbing Dispenser – a 12-compartmental box, great for traveling, as well as for everyday use as a space saver and a neat dubbing organizer.
