Had a great day on the water testing out a few things on the big boat getting ready for Tarpon Season. I started out on the low incoming tide so i ran over to check out some redfish that i need for Sundays charter i show up and a mullet boat was working the area but still got one on the jig none on the fly so we started to hit the trout spots and we were getting 10 here and 10 there till we hit the last place and we must have caught 200 in a hour and a half on jigs and fly. I just hope it holds out for the next week.

Building a Dubbing/Streamer Brush by Ron Cavalier
This was designed and built by Ron Cavalier one of the top fly tiers in the US and ties all my fly’s for my website Fly Fishing Tampa my fly fishing charter business located in the Tampa, FL
In this video you will see how it works and if you would like to purchase one go to Cascade Crest Tools – fly tying materials and tools and ask for Pat.
If you’re tired of spending a lot of money on streamer brushes that don’t quite fill your needs, then build them yourself, using an electric twister that will build a 22” streamer brush that will give you an edge when fishing either fresh or saltwater.
My system uses .0035, .0045 and .0065 stainless steel wire.
You’ll be able to build brushes out of CCT Phony Faux Fur, Neer Hair, Synthetic Yak Hair, Fish Hair, Polar Flash, Sparkle Flash and Craft Fur.
Natural fur works great as well.
Colors of material and the large selection of flash gives the edge to the man who designs, builds and ties with his own streamer/dubbing brushes.
Here is a few examples of the fly’s that where tyied with the Dubbing/Streamer Brush.
