    Default RITE™ Half Hitch MAG BOBBIN

    good day

    As a newbie fly tier, i ordered a Dyna-King Barracuda Vise and peak tools, however the tools i have dont seem to fit the bill so i was looking at some new bobbins and came to this site - Please to the fly tying masters, show me the way.

    Is bobbin any good? RITE™ Half Hitch MAG BOBBIN

    Looks simple, but I haven't found one close to it.

    I have not used them, but from what I have heard from other tyers, yes, you would be wasting your money.

    LOL@ Shammer, haven't heard, said or thought of kief since the late 80's on the south coast of Natal.
