Hoping somebody can help me out on this one, I'm starting to mix my own dubbing, I've taken notice that some dubbing have a little very very fine tinsel mixed in, I have saw it in gold, silver, copper, green and what I would call rainbow colors. If I had to guess I would say its maybe about 1/100 of an inch wide. My question is what is the name of it and where can I buy it at ?

Ed,

I've used Antron clipped short- maybe 1/8" lengths- and mixed with bunny dubbing, this gives the subtle 'shine' you may be referring to. Good for nymph abdomen and thorax use, adds some accent to these areas.

have fun with it,

It is called "Haretron". You might be able to get it at American Sports Supply in Woodland, WA. It is a blend of various colors of rabbit fur and chopped clear Antron.

Thanks Matt I checked it out but that's not it but you did give me a hint so I followed it and I'm 99% sure its called Wapsi Prism Dubbing from what I can see from a pic of it I'm going to order a bag and see if its or not thanks again.
