Tonight I took a cue from our innovative, brownliner, fly tying friend over at Singlebarbed and took a detour to the local Wally World in search of fly tying paraphernalia.
The big score of the night had to be the $10 spool holder from the sewing aisle. It was a major bonus that it will almost fit the top of the fly tying desk perfectly.
I also managed to pick up:
- Enough eyes for 40 flies (.97)
- Four different color skeins (40 yards) of let's call it "hemp nymph body material" ($1.97)
- Enough foam for a gazillion crease flies in every color imaginable ($4.97)
- A massive package of large metallic plastic "lace" ribbing material that looks as if it would be great on big Czech nymphs or salt water flies alike (around $3.00).
