Semperfli Dirty Bug Yarn
Excellent Yarn for
Buggy Tenkara Flies
This yarn reminds me of the Spindrift yarn that is so popular in the USA Tenkara community but in different colors. Super buggy and on a convenient spool.
Description from Semperfli:
When we look closely at insects and invertebrates they are not just one color but a range of mixed colors across their body. So why do we often use single color dubbing to imitate nature? That was the big question the Semperfli Pro Team was asking. As a result we developed Dirty Bug Yarn Black which is part of our Dirty Bug Yarn fly tying range. We call it Dirty Bug Yarn because it has the multiple colors found on insects and invertebrates, whether you are tying shrimps, baetis nymphs, caddis nymphs it does not matter. We decided to blend multiple color materials into Dirty Bug Yarn Black creating a 2 ply yarn so that you can tie larger nymphs or split the 2 ply yarn for smaller flies.
Dirty Bug Yarn is capable of being used as what we call a dubbing rope, simply tie in Dirty Bug Yarn Black and wrap around the hook or you can break apart the Dirty Bug Yarn to make dubbing!. When we designed Dirty Bug Yarn we wanted a highly fibrous material that would look really ‘buggy’ and look natural. Dirty Bug Yarn is exactly that, simple to use, highly buggy and very versatile.
