Predator Dubbing Baitfish – Sea trout fly

In this video, we are going to tie a baitfish fly for sea trout. The main material in this fly is predator dubbing which makes it super easy to tie and the material comes in many great colors that are very fluorescent. When I peel the dubbing in my hands I do that to get all the fibers to be in the same direction but also I pull it apart to make the fibers shorter. The material is quite strong but if you take it a little at a time you can peel it apart instead of cutting. I prefer that to get a nice taper on the fly and for the colors to blend nicely with each other. The closer to the head the shorter I peel the fibers. In the tail, it is almost the full length. The UV resin I add to the head before attaching the eyes is Gulff Thinman to make the fly more streamline in the water and when I do it before attaching the eyes, that process will be easier too.
