    Default Dubbing

    Got back into fishing last year and have dug out my old fly tying gear.
    Fancied tying up some dries to tempt the local residents but when I checked my seals fur it is looking like there has been some kind of mite at it so binned the lot and am going to have to replace.
    Any recommendations on decent suppliers of seals fur or suitable substitute - quite like the patterns I see now with a bit of UV straggle through them?

    I use beaver dubbing Ned, it is great for dries and nymphs as is fine and floats well. I have a box of mixed colours. For the sparkly stuff, Lucian at troutline has great ranges, I love the salt and pepper hare dubbing with sparkle, also other colours.

    If you want to go back to seals fur - and in my opinion there is nothing else that gives the same translucence and sparkle- try Castle Feathers SEALS FUR | eBay or as previously mentioned Rob Denson, top quality from both.

    Buy some UV sparkle separately for making your own custom blends.

    I have yet to find a dubbing that floats 100%, they all seem to take on water. I use Wapsi dry fly dubbing, that seems to work ok, and for sparkle, I use Orvis antron superfine dubbing box of mixed colours, and that floats as well.

    What I find that floats really well is a quill body, strip a small mallard or teal flank feather, wind it on and it floats like a cork.
