Tungsten Mini Leech – Hans Stephenson

This is a rad little beadhead leech from Hans @ Dakota Angler and uses a dubbing technique I rarely see. Clump dubbing is more like spinning deer hair on the hook than dubbing, but the result is a fluffy dub, similar to what you might achieve with a dubbing loop without the need to spin and tease out the dub.
