You can use the tip to tie a soft hackle wet fly.

Here is a basic recipe.

Hook: TMC 3761 or similar size 12 to 18
Thread: Uni 6/0 or 8/0 whatever color you want to match the body
Body: Whatever dubbing you want, or you could make a simple thread body
Hackle: Hen hackle
Notes: You could use a wire rib if you want. You could use some of the hackle fibers for a tail.

There are a bunch of soft hackle wet fly videos on YouTube.
