was just getting a few things together to tie up some flies tomarrow and realized i forgot a couple tools. neither are required, but i find both VERY usefull for the tying i do. Marc Petijean Magic Tool Clip Set- dubbing brush maker- i built my own crude version. you can buy 1 for around $70. look in the gallery for 1 somebody else made, sorry i forgot who it was, been a while since a seen it.
