Synopsis of Class

Many people who have been tying for a while are aware of what "dubbing" is. However, many do do not know the various methods of dubbing. As well, they are not aware that you can use all kinds of materials when dubbing; natural and synthetic. I am often asked by tiers about the different methods of dubbing and when to use each method.

This class is designed to educate tiers and help them improve their dubbing techniques. We will start off by actually making our own dubbing. It is not a difficult process and can be done with many common materials. We will then cover the direct dubbing method (which people are most familiar with). There are actually two different direct dubbing methods we will cover. We will then cover dubbing loops and why you would use them over the direct dubbing method. Lastly, we will learn what dubbing brushes are. We will then use all of these techniques to two three very common trout nymphs

All tying material will be provided. You will need to bring the following tying equipment.
