  1. I use a couple of different hackle pliere but the Stonfo Elite Hackle Pliers are my favorite.
  2. I have several of these. Great box for the price. http://store.hookhack.com/New-Big-Streamer-Box-Three-sides-for-holding-flies/productinfo/HHPPBIG/
  3. I bought the OTT Light LED Task Lamp and it works great as a portable travel light. The color rendition is okay and the batteries last a very long time. I have an AC adapter that fits so I can run the lamp on AC if desired. I picked mine up on Amazon and the price was very good. The list is $29.99 and it is only $22.40 with 2 day shipping. http://www.amazon.com/OttLite-290G59-Battery-Operated-Mobile-Black/dp/B0038CBF42
  4. Try using Yak Hair, typically 12 to 14 inches long. A supplier is shown below but a lot of shops now carry Yak. http://blog.saltyflytying.com/fly-tying-materials/saltwater-yak-hair-for-fly-tying/ A lot of color choices to choose from.
  5. Great looking setup, time to start stocking some fly boxes.
  6. You need to develop your story on how to tell your wife that the bottle of nail polish is yours. Otherwise you will not be sleeping in the big bed.
  7. Like many fly tiers I use Sally Hansen Hard as Nails for head cement. I have recently found a product called Wet 'n' Wild Shine Nail Protector Clear 401A at Walgreens for $.69 cents. It works fine and is 1/4 the price of Sally Hansen.

  9. Allen Fly Fishing is having a bead sale. 20% Off all beads. Use code BEAD20 at checkout. http://www.allenflyfishing.com/fly-tying-beads/
  10. I had purchased a Hareline 18 compartment hook box recently for $9.99. Yesterday I was in Michaels Crafts and found these boxes, 99% similar in size and function for $2.39. I picked up a couple for the price I could not pass up.
  11. Sweet, nice tying area, clean and organized.
  12. I was in Target and found these hair wraps in the Combs and Brushes section. They are great for managing the loose ends of used spools and price is pretty cheap.
