    Here's one so you don't have to spend big bucks on waste receptacles.
    Visit Michael's Crafts, or Joann's or Hobby Lobby (or any number of yarn/fabric stores) and pick up a wooden 4.5" embroidery hoop. Take off the outer hoop, set a zip lock baggie on the inner hoop, and return the outer hoop over the baggie (the baggie will be sandwiched between the hoops). Add a rubber band to the set screw and loop the other end over the center post of the vise. Perfect garbage bag!

    Hi to all,

    I have used Bronze bore brushes for ever to pick out dubbing. You can even add a handle, the end is threaded. I also included a picture of the urine cup that I use for what ever. I mentioned them in an earlier post.

    Frank, the Urine cup is funny. While I was in Idaho Tying a couple of months ago, Dorion came in and walked up to me with one of those fly containers. He handed it to me for Samples, but that was the first thought I had ....we all had a good laugh on that one!
    To add to the humor, he also brought me a Rock Star Latte!!!!

    To Keep it going My Tip for this week
    I get one those wooden, spring loaded clothespins & put a length of that foam insulating tape( The stuff is about 3/8 " thick) that you seal windows with on each or just one side of the clothspin. The foam will hold the fly fairly securely & I keep one on my vise stem to keep flies from the vise while they dry. I'll make up a bunch of wet fly or streamer bodies & put them on the clothspin & clip it to my light, so the heat from the lamp will dry it faster I've put one on my vest to hold that dropper fly I just took out of the flybox while I tie on the point fly.
