I was making my list for the craft store. My issue was my tinsel was coming unwrapped from the spool, getting kinked and just everywhere. So I looked it up and found a DIY spool tender. Before I left I checked in to buy more hooks and found these. I cannot believe I never saw them before. I bought 8, and will be buying more
If your working with wire for ribbing your flies this is one gadget you'll want. I don't like cutting off a length to tie a fly or a few flies because there always seems to be some waste.
It use to be hard to control working off the spool,but not any more using these spool mates. It also help me by using what I need without waste.
