Default Re: A good whip finish tool

Do you use a 'standard' style or have you found a unique one that works better ?

Big flies I just half hitch a couple times with my fingers. One half hitch ,,i just pull a loop in my thread, switch my bobbin thur it,,and pull it tight. Works good,,,is fast too. But I like a tool when I'm dealing with dry fly size stuff. I can whip and finish with my right hand,while holding my thread and bobbin,,and my hackle back out of the way,,with my left.

If you are onto a new tool,,let us know.

Mike
