Interesting dubbing technique

I ran across a link to this video on another forum:

I haven't tried it yet. I looks like it will make a fly that's heavier than I usually like, but one that could be useful on point in the colder months.

Makes a nice looking nymph, Bob, and the color options are endless. Thanks.

Nice videos and flies. He's almost as soothing to listen to as Hans.

I agree. He reminded me of Hans immediately.

Thanks for sharing the link. It looks like a very useful technique, and one I intend to play around with. It looks like a nice way to add weight to nymphs.

Yes. I've used this technique before, but not as nice as this guy!

One thing I found was easier, was to rotate the vise when winding the body rather than wrapping the dubbed wire. The Dubbing stayed in place on the wire. For me anyway... :)

Someone spoke of Hans. How is he these days? He's disappeared !

Yep, very interesting technique, I’ve seen it done before when tying a PT wrapping the pheasant tail herl around the wire but never dubbing. I’ve got some very fine wire so I’m going to give it a try on a soft hackle nymph.
Thanks for the link.

Most things have been done before, I've been dubbing on wire for a long time. Muzz Wilson used to dub onto chenille, tubing, wires etc. basically anything that you were able to wrap onto a hook.
I don't have a decent example, the interesting part is seeing the flies wet, depending on the dubbing used. This is a photo I took ages ago whilst in London for a 6 mth stint. The dubbing was supplied for a swap on another forum.
