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