Editor’s Note: It’s good to see innovative solutions to every day problems we face in fly fishing. An Earth shaking solution? No. End World hunger? Nuh uh. Make it a little easier to deal with that cable of crap we need to wrap on a hook? Well, yeah…and that’s enough. For now.
Tying with Estaz, chenille and yarn right off the card has never been an easy proposition for me. I usually cut an approximate length rather than try to wrap from the card. This often resulted in a piece of Estaz cut too short or too long. Either way resulted in waste of a rather expensive material and also time. Many years of thinking “There ought to be a better way” resulted in my Material Bobbin/Bottle.
The bottles can be purchased at Jo Ann’s Fabrics as well as most craft stores. The little orange thing in the photo is a foam ear plug. The foam ear plug’s function is to provide tension on the material. (Estaz, chenille, yarn, etc.)
Two premier recreational fisheries will soon have new protections in place, a measure aimed at ensuring that tarpon and bonefish’s economic and fishing value remain for generations to come. Tarpon and bonefish become catch-and-release only fisheries beginning Sept. 1.
