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.

Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
