It looks like my dubbing brush thread already timed out, so further comments are no longer possible.
Perhaps the timeout period should be a few days longer? If ever at all?
What's wrong with reviving old converstaions? :=))

I'm easy. I'm just asking.

Anyway, here is a previously promised photo showing how I actually make thread-based brushes,
rather than wire-based brushes (thread is wetted with fabric cement first).

Simply edit your last post if the reply bottom is nor available. You can add any additional information you want.

Over half of forum members read the forum on a smart phone. A single edited post is easier to read than several individual posts. The single post saves a little data too.

Here's a thread brush made with hairs of some kind. I think it's badger guard hairs.
This is essentially the same thing as a wet fly hackle made as a dubbing loop, which
might have been made on the fly as you tie it.

But it's a lot easier to make these instead, as modular units, in advance, independent of the fly they
eventually get tied onto. If you leave a bit of thread running wild at each end--after the fabric cement cures--it is
easy to tie these on as if it was a hackle feather.

Hair dubbing loops made ON THE FLY are a lot trickier to accomplish well.
