Re: Flytying tips and techniques.......
This is something everyone on here has already done, but I'll say it anyway. You can make VERY cheap scud shells by cutting apart a plastic sandwich bag into thin around 1/4'' inch thick by 1-1 1/2 inch long depending on hook. It also makes it easier to tie on when you taper the end.
Another simple one, kinda similar to reed007's. I've added small round magnets I found at the crafts store to my pedestal stand to hold bare hooks waiting to be tied or finished flies I haven't put into a box yet.
