Ya, I'm down for a solid half hour on a pheasant tail. Seconds mean nothing when you are wasting time anyway.

I found it amusing that Mark Pettyjeans Magical Bobbin was invented by a guy who's not obsessed with having his scissors palmed during the entire fly construction, another Pro Tip that I'll have no truck with (although that might actually shed 2 or 3 seconds off per fly).


That trick works nice!

I didn't have a vise, so I had to clench the pipe in my teeth while holding the hook in one hand...

There's a thread. Clock yourself from start to finish tying a fly. I can't be bothered to do things like prep materials ahead of time, or even have them out and not have to look for them.

I feel accomplished if I can bang 'em out in 5 minutes or so per fly, but usually I think the average is closer to 10-15. I just can't be bothered to race through them.

You'll find yourself far more likely to retrieve them from stupid spots if you take your sweet time making them.

Also, pete, mother of god do I miss smoking a pipe on the stream side. this sport sucks without tobacco use.

I can bang out dubbing on a hook (with or without bead) in 30 seconds. This includes 2.7 seconds to pick up whip finish tool and 2.6 seconds to pick up scissors.

Best cigar I had this year was sitting on the banks of Falling Springs under a tree on a warm morning. That's a cool starry bra way to start the day.

Who has a funny green hat? Oh, that hat. Dude, you never saw that before? Hell, that was standard issue for the last 16 years of my life.

Dubbing on a hook runs me about a minute or so, lead doubles my time. Wire triples it.

In high school shop class I made a tool this is half bobbin, half cutters, half whip finish, half roach clip. I should have made a CAD drawing and sent it to Dr. Slick.

I saw the green hat during the Able adventures but unfortunately you never smoked the pipe in the store.

FYI the smoke alarms in that place don't work.

I always smoked enroute and leaving the store. Driving and smoking is a simple pleasure. You think I'm anal retentive about stupid fly fishing nonsense, you should talk pipe with me. Its a detailed lifestyle, my friend.

Wow you guys are great at taking a thread WAY off topic. lol

Jdaddy I take no offense to not wanting the mp bobbin. I havnt met the person who wants it.... until they actually use it. I will never use another bobbin holder and its not because i can thread bobbins quickly and easily with it. The bobbin holder is the most comfortable bobbin holder i have ever tied with and i have tried many of bobbin holders.

Its not that much more than some other bobbin holders out there. But its of much better quality imo

Plus mine was a gift, I to would not put out the money for this bobbin holder and had many other bobbin holders. Then my old lady gave me it for Christmas and well, I haven't picked up another bobbin since.

I own one bobbin. I don't own a bodkin. I use big needles. I use one color of thread at a time. I don't follow pattern: I imitate bugs with the material I have. Some times it is "LaFontaine" or "Shenk" or "Clouser," other times, it is just "JackM."

I sometimes wonder if fly tying isn't overcomplicated more than fly fishing. I refuse to be a slave to fashion.

IMO
