Ooh. Aah. Ohh. It’s spikey. It’s buggy. It’s sparkly. It’s Torrey Collins’ (manager of UpCountry Sportfishing in New Hartford) proprietary hare’s mask dubbing blend. I was able to score a wee bag of the goods from Torrey — that sounds so scandalous — and I’m looking forward to making some deliciously horrible bugs with it.
What’s in it? I’ll let Torrey tell you: “I shave a hare’s mask mask, then add in gray squirrel (SLF Squirrel Spikey Dubbing) to darken it and make it spikier; Antron Sparkle Dubbing to make it easier to dub; and assorted color pinches of UV Ice Dub & Prism Dub for some subtle flash and UV.￼ Lethal combination.”
Sounds like you maybe ought to be buying the baggie behind the local 7-Eleven after midnight. LOL! (Let us know how well it works.)
I will. Got some buggy nymphs and soft hackles in mind. I’m sure both will do well.
Hey so can we buy it too?
I think the intent is that you now have a template to make your own. All you need is a mini blender or coffee grinder. 😊
the secret ingredient is Torrey’s beard hair!
That would be something!

I don’t know where the source materials are from, but the mixology is happening right here in CT. 🙂
