Fourth shot - I clamp and cut the dubbing wire so I can lift the entire hackle up of the board as I start spinning it

Shot five - close up on the hackle as it starts to spin, if the fibres start to bind up - stop spinning and pick them out before restarting the machine - allways keep firm tention on the wire

Correction to the last photo - this is the hackle end on to show the bottle brush efect that is present before one folds the hackle to get a flat workeable hackle. The attached photo is the one on trimming the but ends

For comparison I have a shot with the spun hackle in the rear, next is split Amherst centre tail(very time consuming), followed by stripped Golden pheasant side tail & stripped Amherst side tail - stripping is the simplest and fastest way to produce a hackle from these thick stemmed feathers - unfortunately not all feathers strip well, the Amherst centre tails are the most difficult which is why I produce a spun hackle from them as they are amongst the prettiest feathers to use.Of course one can always use the centre tails just as a beard - this is certainly the fastest & simplest way to use them, but not necisarily the most fun!
The "machine" is simply a small electrical engine with a hook attached - the one in the photos was obtained from a fly shop in Kamloops - one can make some thing similar from a small handhelled fan(obtained from any of the "dollar stores" in the summer in Canada) by removing the fan and replacing with a hook - I would also remove one of the two batteries and replace it with a nail, cut to size, to slow the engine down.

Thanks for the comments guys - ever since I got my didgital camera I have been looking for an excuse to play with it, this post did just that - exellent post, Matt. In terms of what one can do with "dubbing" brushes the only limit is one's imagination.
Metalhead, careful - I have been looking for an excuse to head up north! - did you get that parcel yet?
