Re: Muskrat Dubbing the easy way

Just came across this topic! I just bought a couple of Muskrat skins and was thinking that i should try and shaving one into different batches of dubbing. I might need to go get an electric groomer now!! Thanks!

So tonight I attended my tying clubs monthly meeting. We always have a prize table to raffle off items. I was lucky and won an English Jay bird skin. As a materials holic Im always excited to find new materials. My question is, what patterns out there call for Jay feathers??? Are there wet patterns?
