Default Re: Fly Tying Tools ??

Frank,

I actually did purchased the HMH tube mandrel you pictured in
your reply, but unfortunately it did not fit my Peak vise like I had
hoped. The "pin" had an interference issue, so I will be returning
it to my local shop. In my research for tying tube flies I came
across info about a tapered pin, so I actually used coat hanger
wire, my grinder & made my own tapered tying mandrel pins.
They work great in my vise & I have tied up about 8-10 tube
flies which I hope to get a chance to use once the rivers settle
down a bit. Also, the tube fly items at my local shop were a little
too high $$ for me so I did some more research & found a nice
fly shop in Oregon that has good prices & that's were I picked up
my supplies. (Fly fishing equipment - fly-fishing tackle, fly fishing rods, fly fishing reels...) These flies are fairly easy to
tie & you can pretty much tie any pattern on them. Check it out.
I'll try to get some pics posted soon.

Tie One On
