Howdy All;

John S. I think you pretty much summed it all up when you said;
" I find i really like the way the spun bodies come out consistently."
Something Ma Nature doesn't do. Variety, even minor nuances are
more her style. Thinking of a line-up of Humans, all the same yet
different, regardless of what our society presently wants us to think.

I too have used a dubbing loop and I have tried split thread at times, but recently I have been focused on using the Clark dubbing block I received from William Anderson with YLI silk thread. I find i really like the way the spun bodies come out consistently.

I would make the arguement that for me, the split thread technique produces more consistent patterns, uses less thread/silk and is much more time efficient.

This is one of the great things about fly fishing and tying. Pursueing the methods and techniques that make us happy.

Happy Thanksgiving Gillie
