Florida Fly Fishing
We are no longer publishing but feel free to enjoy what you read here since it’s always been for the readers anyway!
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.)
In Tampa February 19 and Key West March 16!

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.
