Default Primitive Fly Fishing ???

Anyone ever try this… ‘Macedonian gorget’ (knapped shell and a tuft of wool) or knife-shaved stick, bootlaces (or similar) and an impromptu fly?

I confess to being a bit of old school traditionalist but they had vinyl coated lines by Gladding and nylon mono when I got into this.
