    Very nice tool . I have used it for 3 years now. Get Serafil thread then you don´t need to make loops. Serafil thread is 2 cordell thread and is very easy to split (antitwist the thread with your fingers and put your scissor point in the loop - then open up and put the material from the tools inside the loop)

    Hi BlueBird,

    You are really getting into fly tying in a big way. That is great and ladies are very good at tying flies. My wife use to tye all of mine.

    There is a DVD available on how to use the Magic Tool. I have not used one my self but it does seem like an interesting technique.

    Mp Magic Tool Dvd
    Item # RP003



    Magic Tool DVD by Marc Petitjean covers all of the basic applications and techniques necessary to use the MAGIC TOOL to open up a whole new dimension to your fly tying! You'll see Marc tying with his other clever, custom designed MP TOOLS that are now available. Marc covers the following 6 patterns: Basic CDC Caddis, CDC Pardo (Coq de Leon) Caddis, Mayfly Dun, CDC Mayfly Parachute, Chickabou Streamer and Basic Salmon/Steelhead Fly. Learn to integrate CDC as a "hackle substitute" for all of your favorite mayfly and caddis patterns, even parachutes! Watch how to make beautifully segmented and buggy bodies on any mayfly, create endless hackle substitutes, mix dubbing and feathers for streamers and nymphs, use materials like Angel Hair and Lite Brite to make collars on streamers and baitfish patterns and more. Plus he clearly and concisely shows how to use the wooden dowels included with the Magic Tool set to incorporate long strands of material like Krystal Flash into absolutely any pattern. 33 minute DVD

    You might also PM lambster, he is a member but doesn't post much but I think that is the tool he uses to make his metalic streamers. You might give him a shout to see what he thinks.

    Here is picture off Serafil thread that is a nice thread to use with the tool and also a nice thread allround. One more tips in the same way. A very nice dubbing wax is the swix v40 blue extra skiwax. The skiwax has a perfect consistence for dubbing.

    Serafil thread is used in the cloth-factories. I can shop it in my local fly-tying shop in Norway.
    Here is a link for one person that use the Serafil Viktor Sermek

    You can also use the Petitjean thread (or any thread that will flatten) and split it with a very sharp needle (scissor point).
    This take some more time since you have to untwinn (flatten) the thread. There are some variants to do that are a bit more easy.

    One use off Serafil (two cordel) thread is by the shoe repair man. He use a very strong and thin variant off the thread.

    So you must go out and hunt for the thread

    The thread will do the fly tying much more easy. Dubbing is very easy - just split the thread, apply wax to the 2 cordells and tutch-dubb the dubbing. Rotate the bobbin and apply to the fly. You can insert deerhair,cdc, feather and many more things between the cordells. It is only your fantasy that stops here

    One very nice video demo with the Serafil thread will you find here MollanMedia_Video.

    The video is a flash video with Staffan Lindstrøm one off the most inovative fly tyers in Norway.

    To start the video click - Staffans Renaflue (the words spoken is in norwegian)

    On the page where the finger is.

    There are also another nice videos on the page (Staffan Monterer Del1 is a very nice way to set up your fly fishing gear)
