Fly Tying: Synthetic Dubbing (Hareline’s Ice Dub)

Bead Head Pattern (Ice Dub Thorax)

This is the thorax of a small (16) bead head pattern. The black Krystal Flash abdomen is not too visible, but it flows up from the bend of the hook to the thorax of Peacock Ice Dub (Hareline Dubbin). I like Ice Dub, but I imagine similar synthetic dubbing’s exist throughout the world. I macro’d the thorax to show the tangled web of fibers that I teased out. A nice Starling wing was tied in right behind the gold bead.
