Holiday Gift Ideas, Day 1

If you are looking for ideas for your favorite fly-fisher, or maybe you want to forward this over to that gift buyer, here you go.  For the next 12 days, I am going to suggest some ideas of both fishing and fly-tying.   Some product that I use and believe in that are mostly affordable.  
Starting it off is the Magic Tool.

When I first bought the Magic Tool, it sat around for almost a year before I figured out how to use it.  Now, I would never tie flies without it.  I don't use it all the time, but I love it for flies that require CDC in them.  And while I have only scratched the surface of it's uses, I am recommending it right now.  The clips hold CDC to insert into split threads and you are able to tie small CDC duns down to size 26 with this tool.  You can also use it to tie larger bugs such as Wooly Buggers.  You will just have to try it out to see what you can do with it.   Check out the video below to see some action.

  1. Interesting tool. Had to go out on YouTube to see exactly how it worked. Only problem I have is I can't even see a size 26 let alone tie one, but then again I'm old.
