Seal Fur dubbing
Seal fur dubbing has been used for tying flies since the beginning,
seal's fur has a translucent quality not found in any other material.
This quality allows light to pass through, creating features which
are very attractive to fish. In preparing dubbings, many flytiers
like to mix several colors together rather than using one solid
color. For examples for damsel nymphs one could blend light
olive, yellow, a bit of rust and a small bit of claret and orange. For
darker colors: black, grey, dark claret, brown....
For dry flies: seal fur doesn't absorb water, one or two false cast and the fly is ready to float. For reservoir, some use with great success, the "Fly" made up of black or olive seal dubbing only. (real easy to tye!)
Wet flies and nymph: the Irish flies use a lot of it, claret and olive bumble and theirs variants, bibio... plus the damsel nymphs...
Streamers: to replace the chenille with great colors combination, like the fly on the right: black/fiery brown .
