    Last night as I was tying a centipede fly immitation and my wife just got curious by looking over my shoulder then she said "hey, those are cool looking stuff you tying". then she grabs it off but I still have the thread on and then WHAM... she screamed!! her finger got hooked (but that bad). She didnt see the black thread still attached to the fly.

    Hi Bluebird,

    I am hoping that you give us a report on the Magic Tool after you get everything sorted out.

    Trygve
    Benicchi thread also splits well for use as a dubbing loop. The Magic Toll/Benicchi combo is how I hackle fox fur tips for bugger hackle.

    I was about to ask you for the specific store in NYC that you found the magic tool, but that seems rather insensitive right now after your wife's injury. How's she doing? How was the hook removed- do it yourself? Docs place?

    In any case, I think I can speak for others here in that we wish her well, hope for a quick healing-up, and hope she doesn't campaign against the dangers of this sport too strongly after that incident.

    Jose, she's ok. thanks for asking.. not that deep, just a puncture and little blood comes out... but.. she's fine..

    I got hooked also for the same damn fly... the centipede pattern is a killer... LOL

    Oh I got that "Magic Tool" from Urban Angler at New York City (corner 25th street, Broadway and Park Ave). For the number and direction... go to www.UrbanAngler.com.

    Great tool!!

    I used the Magic Tool today but my thread is so thin and can't split them... so, instead, I twisted using a whipping tool.

    this is the fly... awesome device...

    Its getting more interesting now... every night when we both get home from work. My wife would always asked me whats the next fly pattern I will be tying. She look look into all my fly tying books and pick a couple of very nice cool patterns but hard to tie flies (for my level of experience).

    Whenever I finish a nice one she would ask me to find and join Fly Swaps and so eager to receive stuffs from the fly swaps. Like the one hosted by Joni. She can't wait to get to see the other people's work.

    I told her how about I will bring her to a fly shop and she can check out the thousands of available flies.. lol
