Dirty Bug Yarn
Specifically designed with a mix of natural and synthetic materials, Dirty Bug Yarn was the result of research by Semperfli into different dubbings. Many traditional dubbings are often ‘single colour’ dubbings; however, in reality, if you look at any natural fly or nymph, it is usually a mix of colours. Nature is not monochromatic or single colour!
Dirty bug yarn utilises a blend of colours to make a more realistic fly body, whether it be a dry or nymph. Their research resulted in a selection of essential dubbing colours and blends that are suitable for specific families of flies such as caddis and Mayflies.
For people who are used to doing their own dubbing blends, working with Dirty Bug Yarn takes away the hassle of blend inconsistency or trying to remember how you mixed your last blend! Dirty Bug Yarn gives you a consistent blend. You can also blend 2 or 3 strands to create even more unique results.
It's worth noting that Dirty Bug Yarn does trap air, so can be used on flies that require neutral buoyancy. It will take floatant too, and is lovely if you taper it to a point.
Dubbing is, without doubt, one of the more difficult skills for fly tyers to learn, which is why Semperfli developed its range of ‘dubbing on a rope’ products They are ready made yarns that can simply be tied and wound onto a hook. Dirty Bug Yarn can be used straight off the spool for larger flies or split into single strands for smaller flies. They come in a stunning range of colours that will no doubt appeal to new and skilled tyers alike.
There are 5m / 5.4 yards (approx ) per spool.
