New Product Review by Jay Nicholas – Diamond Brite UV 2 Dubbing by Spirit River

Spirit River Diamond Brite UV2 - a

No. I’m not going to get into the pros and ??? of UV material, UV 1 versus UV 2 – and all that stuff. Honestly I’m not sure what I know, but I know what I think and I am superstitious and I have had very good results fishing UV active materials and so there you have it.

What I can assure you about Diamond Brite UV 2 Dubbing is that I am innately drawn to the colors I see.

This Diamond Brite UV 2 Dubbing looks to me very similar to Ice Dub, only it seems a little more consistent in terms of the texture of the dubbing. This dubbing makes very fine bodies as-is or when blended with other dubbing materials.

This is another case where I noticed somewhat randomly that a new-to-me material was VERY ATTRACTIVE – so I jumped on the opportunity to give it a try.

Summary: I love the colors, I love the textures, and I am about to incorporate this Diamond Brite UV 2 Dubbing into all of my 2018 flies. It is what it is.

 

Oh yes, it looks like there are 42 – FORTY TWO – color options of Diamond Brite UV 2 Dubbing . Sigh.

I will also tell you that EVERY color I looked at was attractive. There.

    You’re funny Jay!

    You should fish this dubbing on Lake Wobegon…where ALL the dubbings are above average.

    Cheers, Stevie
