An extended body tool will make this MUCH easier to tie. I rigged up a C-clamp from an old vise and attached it to my desk. I then ran the cord from a retractor through it and fitted a barrel swivel to the end of it. Pull the cord over to the poly yarn (tied in forming a loop), then use the rotary function of my vise to wrap my thread and materials on the extended body.
Best used on still or slow water.

WOW was I wrong. These things seem to be bulletproof and hold a huge amount of flies. I am psyched to get these loaded and get back to the water.
Thank you Will, for these boxes.

It holds lots of flies and the only change I've made is a hole for a cotter pin. A safety line is attached to the head of the cotter pin is to keep clumsy me from dropping it in the water. ... read more Large Double Sided Clear Lid Waterproof Streamer Fly Box - 6.5" x 4.5" x 1.75" excellent Great box for streamers.
