Got me swinging...

Recommended Posts

So a friend of mine who recently passed away was getting into fly tying and I am slowly inheriting his stuff as his wife goes through it.

I came across some pieces in his kit that I cannot identify.  I assume he intended to use them for tying because they were in the kit with beads and hooks but I have no idea what the flying hell they might be used for.  

You might not be able to see it but there is a small hole in the tip.

Any ideas?

I seem to remember a plastic conehead like those for saltwater flies but I can't find any pictures online.

Thanks, @Jaydub.  Looks like it.  I may have to google those and see if I can figure an application for tying  I'm salt only so maybe...

I don't know if you could make it work with saltwater hooks but if you could get that on front of hook (drill hole bigger?) and tie your streamer behind it it would not only make a nice attractor on the front but as you strip it it should give a nice "walk the dog" underwater action.

 

edit...or you could use them as "tees" on the par 3 holes on the course for you iron shots.
