i mainly got this to use at my tying station but after using it some i will have to get another to keep on my vest as well...for really small flies such as midges in sizes past 20 they are a fantastic tool for holding on to them when getting them out of the fly box or just to tie the fly on to the line
Not indispensable but worth every penny you spend. Besides facilitating tying the fly to your leader, you canÃ¢â¬â¢t beat it for inserting a small hook into your midge jaws . Pinch on to the eye ( either straight or down) . By magnetizing it you can pick small hooks out of a box and Ã¢â¬ÅflickÃ¢â¬Â the mass over a plate shaking off how many you need. Great to retrieve a dropped fly on the rug when your tying. Clamp it with your forceps for extra reach!
These are an extremely handy tool, and I keep finding new uses for these tweezers.They are very helpful in securing tiny beads while inserting small hooks. I have used them as palmering pliers, as well as weight to secure a broken thread for a restart. They also provide enough positive grip to wrap wire rib bodies easily, and I feel they would make a helpful addition to any tyer's bench.
