Fly swaps!

Tied this Black widow angel up for Pat the other week which he liked. Started with four black schlappen and Chinese cock hackles tied onto the back of the hook. Then dubbin loop brushed some black raccoon fur.

Then ran a ring of clumps of black ostrich herl around the whole fly then added another dubbing loop brush of raccoon then more ostrich herl. Tied on a sprig of red arctic fox fur for gills then added an olive raccoon head.

Hi Simon have you ever done a post about how you make the dubbing loop brush with raccoon and tie it in? I'd be interested in seeing how you do it.
