Re: Birdnest from Doug

Here is Cal's "dark" dubbing. Not quite sure if it's supposed to be black or olive but I know it's for imitating large dragon and damsel fly nymphs. It's the same formula as his "natural" but dyed.

Re: Uses for American possum

That's how I get a lot of my squirrel and fox and stuff...but I can't bring myself to skin one of those nasty bastards. I buy mine cheap from a fur trapper locally here. We're really close to Stetson Hat's main shop so lots of people trap around here for a side hustle

Here is Mr. Birds "light" dubbing. I'll have to double check his recipe card to give yall the exact formula because its not dyed. Just different ingredients

Re: Birdnest from Doug

Roadkill you and I are the same. I love Birds/Matarelli's dubbing hook. I can't afford one that kind of money for one so I make my own out of TIG rod lol. I mean...Frank hand made his in his basement so what's the difference, right? I'll post up some pictures

I might have posted them in another thread but I've got several of Mr. Bird's dubbing blends from his personal collection if anyone wants to see them for ref...
