LJ,

I have one. I had a few bucks on a cabelas card and grabbed one. I'll dig it out and see how it works. If it works well, you can have it.

Ok, very nice, but one of those almost no weight sewing threaders do pretty much the same thing down to about a #22. No?

If you try it and they work, let me know, I could use some help with tying on my flies!

That's pretty slick, but a bit bulky to suit my tastes. I've got one of the C&F midge boxes with threaders. They fit inside the box and if I'm using midges, that's generally when I need them. Coughlin, brings up a good suggestion too and those things are likely very inexpensive. The magnetic device does look very easy to use though and I can see the appeal.

While that does look very slick and I could definitely see myself using it - I can also see myself NOT using it - which will probably restrict me from buying it. The midge threaders work pretty well and I like that they are compact and light.


Jason: did you ever get that Orvis pack, I forgot to ask you.

My wife is a dental hygienist and she gets me free floss threaders from work.

I use them for threading my bobin and now I might use them to thread hooks as well. Never really had a problem with the tippet but as I age I am sure it will get harder.

Floss Threader

Ask your dentist for a pack your next check up. . . They are usually free.

I am pretty sure it will tread a 22 and maybe a size 24. Anything smaller might be an issue.

don't you still have to run that thing thru the eye of the fly?

I still haven't found the damn thing, but will try again tonight.

For what its worth, when I tie small flies, I put some ultra thin wire through the eye and twist it off. Built in threader.

Tom, you do but it is really stiff and makes it very easy to pass it through. I will test it out later tonight to see how effective it is on smaller eyelets.
