Re: Clark's Spinning Block vs The Dubber

I enjoyed this post. How cool The Dubber is, but I love the feel and results of the traditional block. It is dear to my heart because a forum member made it for me. So you can have your platica and I'll keep the beautiful handcrafted model.

Re: Alpaca!

I sent out a bunch of Alpaca a few years ago to some members. The fibers are long, the colors endless. I've used it for many buggy flies, cutting it into fine dubbing. I love the stuff.
