extended body tool ?

Recommended Posts

with the patterns that use an extended body tool, what do you use? is one kind any better than the others, or do i just need to "try" to make my own?

I use a needle... Tie the extended body onto a needle then slip it off when you are finished. You can then tie the body onto your hook.

Needle in a Dremal tool. Or my low speed drill.
A small, small amount of goo (silicone sealer) and some dubbing.

I use a size 1 and 1/0 bass bug hook. I cut the eye off and cut them off about half way round the curve. from there, it's just like the needle version.
