Dark days and Daylight

Daylight Table Magnifying Desk LampNow that winter is once more upon us, fly tying can become a chore unless you have adequate lighting. Daylight Lamps give you the light you need while not straining you eyes, with their natural light bulbs, you also have the benefit of true colours in your flies. If you have ever bought something in a shop under their unnatural lighting conditions and then wondered why it’s a totally different colour when you get home and look at in daylight, then you will know what I am talking about.
The Naturalight Table Magnifying Lamp has the added bonus of including a 3.5″ diameter magnifying lens ( 1.75x ) with a 4x inset to make your close up work easier. This makes eyestrain a thing of the past, and tying flies in the dark hours a pleasure rather than a chore.

Buck Tail for Salmon Flies

Turrall Buck TailsThe trouble with synthetic hair for some flies is the fact that when you want to mix several or many colours, the only real way to do it with synthetics is to layer the colours.
With Turrall Buck Tail you can put a few strands of each colour together, stack them if you want, and just roll them to get a great mixed wing or tail, something you just can’t do with synthetics, and you can buy them in small patches, you don’t have to buy a whole tail. The standard winging material for large streamers, Salmon and Saltwater flies. These are the finest selected tails from Minnesota and have been expertly tanned and dyed to eliminate oil and unpleasant smell. A Medium to coarse hair of 100-125mm in length.

Hemingway Dubbing

Hemingway Dubbing PacketsCzech Nymph Dubbing
Hand-made dubbing blend for the Czech Nymphs in 20 popular colours. It consists of rabbit, fine antron, camel hair, and fine pearlesent fibers.

Quick Descent Dubbing
A mixture with aluminium metal dubbing that sinks like lead, it’ll quickly become a favourite because it dubs so easily.

Deer Hair Dubbing
Excellent, hi-floating mixture with cut, dyed and curled winter deer hair. For tying nymph thoraxes. Great for dry caddis patterns.

Synthetic Dubbing
Synthetic dubbing is generally constructed of nylon materials and resembles natural dubbing quite closely. This material is an excellent substitute in any nymph pattern calling natural dubbing, but synthetic dubbing is a top choice for dry fly tyers because of it’s excellent water resistance capabilities and extremely light weight.

Hare’s Dubbing
Pre-blended 100% rabbit fur. Underfur and guard hairs are blended. This is the most widely used dubbing material. Longer hair makes it easy to dub. Perfect for both dry flies and nymphs.

UV Dubbing
Excellent dubbing with nice sparkle effect will make your pattern more attractive.

Hare’s Plus Dubbing
Hare’s Plus Dubbing is a blend of hare’s ear, guard hairs, and a small touch of fine sparkling fibres, giving your flies very spiky and transloucent appearance. Excellent fur for nymphs, emergers, wets and streamers.

Peacock Dubbing
This is a great substitution of natural peacock herl. Easy to tie buggy looking and durable “peacock” fly bodies.

Starlite Dubbing
HMG Starlite is very fine mylar type material. Can be formed into hanks and used for big streamers or cut for dubbing your small flies. Works very well with most other materials for dubbing and it doesn’t absorb water, so large flies don’t get heavier. If you like stuff that sparkles and glitters it just doesn’t get any better than this.
