Default Can you tell me how to use this?

Hello,
I posted a thread a while back about how I was at a garage sale. This lady is moving away and was selling everything. She had some fly fishing stuff and we got to talking. She mentioned that fly fishing and fly tying were both her fathers and late husbands passion. She also mentioned that she had a lot of stuff still in the house that she had not gone through yet. She wanted to check with her son to see what he wanted. Anyway to make a long story short she called me a few months later with a package deal. She had a portable tying desk and roughly 2000 hooks of various sizes. She also had 100 containers of various necks and saddles and feathers. A lot of the things still had prices on them from Orvis @ $30. A pop. I have 100s of them. She sold me the lot for $200.
There are a few things that I am not sure of as I am new to fly tying. So here are a few pics, maybe someone can tell me what it is and how to use them. I have not gone through it all yet but if I find more I will be posting up more pics. Thanks Glen. Click the image to open in full size.

#1 is a bobbin holder. completely unscrew the wing nut and attach the thread spool in the other side. reattach onto the bobbin holder frame and screw on the wing nut and spring. the spring will provide pressure on the spool. insert thread into the tube from the spool side and draw it out the end.

#2 are nymph forms and are tied on top of the hook shank to provide a shaped body, most likely a stone fly. then you would dub over that and complete the fly

#3 is imitation jungle cock feathers.

i'm sure you know what #4 is

i'll gladly take the nymph forms off your hands if you dont want them

  1. a homemade (?) bobbin
  2. Those nymph forms are to tie flat,wide nymphs. They never were very popular and probably aren't even sold now.
  3. A lazer cut intimation junglecock nail selection...... they're for eyes on streamers. There's a recent thread about junglecock
  4. A nice looking dry fly neck.... worth more than $30 I'd think

Good for you. Sounds like you can recover your investment and still have a lifetime supply of feathers.

Hey everyone, still going through the containers of tying materials I bought. I came across this stuff. Anyone know what it is and how to use it?

It looks like Mylar piping but I am not sure. Thanks Glen.

yes it is mylar piping

check to see if the core is made from twine or zlon type material. save the zlon type material. throw out the twine

mylar piping can be unbraided and used as mylar for ribbing/ bodies in a pinch or for the different colors

GOOGLE "flies using mylar piping" and search the images

Maybe I don't know how to use it correctly, but it's not all that useful in my opinion.
You can remove the core and slip the tube over the hook shank for a streamer body, tying it in at just the front or front and rear. A lot of people will epoxy over a body like this to make a surf candy type fly with scales

Personally, I like to remove the core, tie the material in at the tail end and wrap the tubing forward making for an easy, bulkier body
If you go with the first method however you can add a rattle underneath which can be a plus

Unfortunately it's not as stretchable as corsair tubing which makes for some nice streamers and floating sliders like this one
