    Default damn educational thread

    Damn Guys some how I missed this thread just read through it and must say its a gold mine I'm suprised that it died so quick.

    FLY TYING TIPS READ AND LEARN FROM IT. IT COULD BE YOU

    Here is my little bit to the cause - When you decide to go through you wife's wool basket and nail varnish ask her first . When bringing a dead bird skin back home (Thanks Wiets) warn her first as well.

    Lastly never ignore her when you tying even if she just knows when to start talking about ? damn forgot all I heard was bla bla bla

    Hi guys,

    I just came across this on the web. A list of stuff that you might need for your fly tying kit

    http://www.killroys.com/tools.htm

    Think it might help someone that's just starting off and needs to know what tools to get.

    Excellent thread!

    My R 0.02 worth.
    I buy wool at a knitting shop (you must see the colours to believe it), cut a length (1m) in 1cm pieces and liquidize them for 30 sek. Store in plastic bank bags. Excellent dubbing!
    I got clear pieces of thin rubber for shellback (about 5mm wide) in my wifes blouses (not bra straps). They use it to hang the blouse on the hangers.
    My dubbing brush is a piece of velcro glued on an ice cream's stick.

    I've got something which works quite lekker and might be of use to u guys.

    It's a dubbing twister/leader twister.

    What u do is take one or two of ur empty thread spools,glue them together with epoxy.Then by using some pliers bend ur wire into correct shape/size.I sommer used a paper clip for this exercise.

    The 3rd pic is of a drill point glued in at the back with epoxy.U now just add ur drill machine and start to twist.

    So on the one side u've got the dubbing twister and on the other(back)drill point for twisting ur leaders.

    Better than doing it manually,trust me!!!!

    Hope u like

    Ciao
