Well I have been wanting to do this since about 2009 and did a tiny bit back then. So here is my first attempt at tying using Don O's Rope Dub Technique. It's passable to me, but I have work to do also. I do like how it can be fluffed up as much or as little as you like and the body is segmented and tight. I have work to do for sure as I hope to do a lot of this, just know I have to practice a lot if I want it to be doing this at a level I like. I soon want to be able to have hackle inside the rope and sticking out as if it was Palmered.

I am not really happy with this one, but here is the link to it....

Next I want to put a hackle feather inside the segmented part.

Your right, but any vise will do well with this technique as it's not a normal way to use dubbing where you use a dubbing loop. All that is not necessary in this method Don Ordes came up with many years ago. He made a DVD about how to do this and sold out, now has it where you can buy it by downloading it from his site. It's really cool way to tie. I was trying to learn it at the same time tying a ton of jigs so dropped it until now. So this is first one I did since I think 2011, lol?

Thank guys I appreciate that! I just need to buckle down and get after this method to get better and faster. I love the flexibility with this as you can change colors at any point and make the body out of almost anything you want.
