Specially designed with a mix of natural and synthetic materials, Dirty Bug Yarn was designed resulting from research of different dubbings when it was realized that many traditional dubbings were often ‘single color’ dubbings. If you look at a baetis nymph it may be olive in but it is usually a mix of colors - nature is not monochromatic or single colored. From that work Dirty Bug Yarn Black was born. Essential dubbing colors and blends suitable for specific families of flies such as caddis have also been created to give tyers the very best options.
For people who are used to doing their own dubbing blends, working with Dirty Bug Yarn Black means you no longer have to worry about inconsistency or forgetting how you mixed your last blend! Tying with Dirty Bug Yarn means you can rely on a consistent blend ongoing. Yes, you can even blend 2 or 3 strands of Dirty Bug Yarn to create even more unique results.
It's worth noting that Dirty Bug Yarn does trap air so it can be used on flies where you need neutral buoyancy. It will also take on floatant. It's lovely if you taper it to a point.
There are 5m / 5.4 yards (approx ) per spool of Dirty Bug Yarn
